"Passing yet another milestone in the rapidly advancing science of genetics, biologists said yesterday that they had compiled a map of the hereditary instructions of the laboratory mouse, the single most important test organism in medical research."

"At a blistering pace, scientists are gaining the tools they need for a deep inquiry into the nature of life."

"Leaders of the public consortium of academic centers that decoded the human genome announced yesterday that they had also decoded the mouse's genome, a tool of great value in interpreting that of people. But the consortium directors' news release neglects to mention that their rival, Dr. J. Craig Venter, the former president of Celera Genomics, decoded the mouse genome more than a year ago."

"In interviews, Dr. Collins and Dr. Waterston said they did not dispute that Dr. Venter had indeed decoded the mouse genome earlier, but both said they had not seen the data. "There's a rumor it exists," Dr. Collins said, adding that Celera's mouse genome was available only to subscribers."

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.
