""We'll spend 20 to 25 percent more each year [on IT] as we expand into areas we have not been in before," says John Murphy, the CuraGen chief information officer. Many biotechs like CuraGen are moving into clinical trials and developing drugs in addition to their traditional role of supporting large pharmaceutical companies in identifying drug targets."

""We're heavily invested in bioinformatics so we need fewer people," Murphy says. "We're fully computerized and [big pharmaceutical companies] are not. They have legacy systems and would love to be able to do what we do. We can [find new drugs] faster, cheaper, and with greater probability of success.""

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
