"A new approach to identifying the genes involved in complex illnesses like cancer and heart disease will be announced today by the Center for the Advancement of Genomics in Rockville, Md., and Duke University."

"The collaboration, to be called the Genomic-Based Prospective Medicine project, will focus first on heart disease, a form of cancer yet to be selected and aspects of infectious disease. Dr. Venter said that all findings would be published in the scientific literature, and that other universities were welcome to join."

"Both partners acknowledged that at least five years of research lie ahead to develop even one prognostic tool using genetic information."

"Both institutions are putting up money for the collaboration. Snyderman said it could cost as much as $10 million the first year to hire people, lay groundwork and begin writing grants."

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.
