"It was a gorgeous, unseasonably warm 84-degree day in San Francisco suburb of Walnut Creek on Friday, but the jamboree attendees couldn't have cared less about the weather. Packed into one room, they stared at the sea squirt genome data on their laptops. Someone announced lunch. No one looked up. A reporter snapped their photographs -- still, no one moved."

""They've worked on aspects of this animal in some cases for most of their lives," said Dan Rokhsar, associate director for computational genomics at JGI and organizer of the jamboree. "This is their first glimpse of what the genome looks like.""

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.
