"Kari Stefansson and his colleagues at deCODE genetics created a new genome map by combining their extensive database of genetic data from 146 Icelandic families with the DNA sequence of the Human Genome Project (HGP). In the process, they were able to increase the accuracy of the genetic map five-fold and correct 104 mistakes in the HGP draft."

"The company plans to make the new map freely available to researchers."

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.
