"Bioinformatics is a bad word in the US, according to Strand Genomics CEO Srinivasan Seshadri. Speaking at a recent conference in the capital, Dr Seshadri said it is fashionable to use the term ‘‘in silico’’, instead of Bioinformatics. Thereby, he indicated that there’s a lot in a name, after all.

Agreeing with that view, Ocimum Biosolutions CEO Anuradha Acharya told eFE that ‘in silico’ is ‘‘unfortunately’’ being used as an alternative for bioinformatics. It is at once fashionable and trendy. But why? ‘‘Ever since bioinformatics companies have been doing badly in the US, people like to use in silico biology as the new buzzword,’’ Ms Acharya reasoned."

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.
