"Bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics. If you have been wondering what these words mean and what the big fuss is all about, you should check out Ed Regis' wide-ranging The Info Mesa: Science, Business, and New Age Alchemy on the Santa Fe Plateau. Many other books have delved into "complexity" theories -- the rigorous effort to understand natural phenomena based on a mingling of biology, mathematics, physics, and chemistry. But Regis' stands apart for two reasons: He weaves an interesting tale around the people who pioneered this intellectual revolution and brought it to critical mass in the Santa Fe (N.M.) area. And while the book has some organizational problems, Regis explains the major facets of complexity with minimum mumbo-jumbo, so readers can appreciate why complexity stands the traditional approach to science on its end."

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.
