"The cow genome could also help "make beef less fat but still tender and tasty - a worthy goal from an agricultural view", says Womack. Sequencing cattle bred for meat, dairy or plough-pulling might also reveal a genetic basis for differences among humans.

As for man's best friend: it shares some of man's worst maladies. Researchers hope the dog genome will shed light on heart disease, cancer, deafness and even narcolepsy and obsessive-compulsive disorder."

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.
