"This time it is the real thing, scientists promise - the complete sequence of human DNA, as perfectly rendered as it ever will be."

"Now, there are no substantial holes left in the string of three billion base units that make up our chromosomes and determine our biology. There are still parts that are technically unsequenceable, says Collins, "but it's only about 1.5 per cent. That's what we called the finishing line when we began this enterprise, and now we've actually done it.""

"When the program began in 1990 -- with the start of the genome sequencing project -- ELSI's leadership initially focused on the proper use of genetic information, the potential for genetic knowledge to generate feelings of inferiority or to be used to stigmatize others, and the privacy and confidentiality of a person's genetic profile."

"But while the behemoth human genome sequencing project grabbed headlines and stirred intense public interest, its smaller philosophical counterpart has remained largely obscure."

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.
