"Originally a boon to medical schools and engineering programs, Bayh-Dole increasingly benefits new fields of research, says Judith Scholz, who directs the University of Manitoba's industry liaison office, and is president of the Association of University Technology Managers. "There's much more going on in information technology and software, and for many institutions that's relatively new," she says. But tech transfer offices must be nimble, she says; where a medical device often takes a decade to reach the market, software innovations may be obsolete before the ink on their licensing agreement is dry. Interdisciplinary fields such as bioinformatics pose additional problems, she adds, to technology managers who are unsure how--or what--to patent."

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.
