"Today, analyzing how multiple genes function together can produce terabytes of data. But as nanotech enables greater sensing and collecting of data, the info flow could become measured in petabytes, or a quadrillion bytes of information. Muscling such large and complex raw results into useful knowledge is the goal of bioinformatics.

Front Line Strategic Consulting predicted last year that the bioinformatics business will reach $1.7 billion by 2006. The market research firm said bioinformatics would grow at a 20 percent annual rate while helping shave 33 percent of the cost, and two years of time, off the drug discovery process."

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.
