"At the January 2002 O'Reilly Bioinformatics conference, Lincoln Stein delivered a keynote address on "Building a Bioinformatics Nation." In this talk, Lincoln argued that current biological databases are islands unto themselves, much like the Italian city states of the Middle Ages. He also proposed that a more formalized Web Service model could link disparate systems, and thereby create a more unified set of bioinformatics tools and databases."

"This article follows up on Lincoln's talk and explores two bioinformatic services you can try out today. By examining these specific services, we get a bird's eye view of the Web Service protocol stack, including WSDL and SOAP."

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.
