"Bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics: these are the buzzwords of the 21st century. Gone are the halcyon days where cool was breaking the sound barrier or sending a rocket to the moon. We can now read the book of life and marvel at its passages. Now that's cool.

"Technological advances in computer technology and molecular biology in the last 30 years have changed the life sciences forever. Yes, it's true that a lot of biology is the same, and that biologists still travel to exotic lands and go unwashed for weeks just so they can observe some squishy thing or other. But computational molecular biology changes the way we look at the living world around us. We can now ask questions about the insides of organisms, and I don't mean their stomachs."

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.
