"In the four years she has led The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR), Claire M. Fraser and her colleagues have decoded and analyzed the genes of bacteria that cause anthrax, Lyme disease, syphilis, tuberculosis, cholera, meningitis, pneumonia, ulcers, and many others. The work has put TIGR at the forefront of the new field of microbial genomics--the foundation for the treatment and prevention of disease in the 21st century. "In terms of microbial sequencing, the world leader is still TIGR," says Julian Parkhill, head of microbial sequencing at the other leader in the field, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge, England.

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.
