"Fifty years after Watson's groundbreaking discovery, his fellow geneticists are keen to honor him and his ongoing contributions to science.

"Jim Watson is one of the great figures of the century, and one of the great humans of all time," said Richard Gibbs, director of the Human Genome Sequencing Center at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. "Not just for this kind of pivotal contribution, but the long-term leadership role that he's played. He's really iconic, and there just really aren't many icons.""

"I have never seen Francis Crick in a modest mood." James Watson's mischievous opening line of The Double Helix raised many eyebrows at the time, but even Crick wouldn't quarrel with it now. Still brash and outspoken at 86, even without the booming laugh that once echoed through Cambridge's Cavendish lab, Crick has no reason for modesty. In the years since their discovery of the double helix, Crick, unlike Watson, has continued to do significant research, mostly by pondering big—and often controversial—theoretical questions rather than by toiling in the lab. Says his longtime colleague and fellow Nobel laureate Sydney Brenner: "He's the only molecular biologist I know who has managed to make a living as a theoretician.""

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.
