"Tracking, collecting and tabulating data from marine samples, satellite images and shipboard information is cumbersome, but with a new software interface the task becomes more manageable and improves the data's value, say marine biologists."

"Putting all of those pieces together took time and involved referring to numerous data sources, recalls Chris Scholin, the lead biologist on the project. Now the newly designed software interface makes it an "all-in-one stop" where information about the ship's movement can be plotted onto a map and displayed in a geographical information system (GIS) program, which can be overlaid with the latest satellite data regarding water temperature or clarity, for example. Additionally, biologists can enter any new molecular data right away, and compare it with previous samples in real time."

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.
