"The slime mold's chromosome 2 contains nearly 25% of the organism's genome. Now that its genome has been sequenced, it is possible to compare it to those of other organisms. The mold's proteins are more like animal proteins than those of plants or fungi. This is not surprising, since this organism evolved after plants and animals had become separate kingdoms, but just before multicellular organisms had begun to evolve distinct organ systems.

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.
