"One striking feature that is advancing the cause for open-source is Apple's decision to adopt it for its OS X, making the operating system the ideal choice for bioinformatics software, said the event's organiser, Mr Elia Stupka.

Mr Stupka is director of bioinformatics at Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory. In his view, sharing software on the open-source platform does not mean sharing database information, which means companies can still continue to have a firm hold over their proprietary data.

Open-source improves, and does not kill, business models, he said."

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.
