"Life science computing startup Teranode said today that it has been awarded $1.8 million from the National Institutes of Health to develop languages and tools for large-scale biological research.

Teranode's technology is based on a visual modeling language for sharing biological research that the company's founders, Larry Arnstein and Neil Fanger, originally developed under the University of Washington Cell Systems Initiative."

"Obvious users for software like this, drug companies. "Languages like this can help refine the design of experiments that can discover drug targets with very high volume experiments, that you can try many more possibilities much more quickly than in the past when things were done manually," says Duncan.

The software, called TeraLab, replaces handwritten notes, and provides a visual, formalized experiment that can be shared as an email attachment. The "person at the other location opens up the attachment and can see exactly what my plan was, and then run it, and they could, in theory, run it at their locations and ship me the results via email."

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.
