"I am a practicing ophthalmologist in Los Angeles, and a medical informatics student at UC Davis. I have followed the conversations about open source software with interest. Recently I have been reviewing the literature on the topic. One thing is not clear to me. I see lots of software available, but IS ANYBODY ACTUALLY DOING THIS? I can see that there are bits and pieces being used here and there. Has anybody set up a whole health care institution using open source software, and if so, is it working in real life? How does the quality/cost compare IN REAL LIFE to commercial software? Does hiring commercial groups to support the products, if you don't have the staffing in house, actually work?""

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.
