"There were facts aplenty at the O'Reilly Bioinformatics Conference. Hundreds of millions of facts, as it turns out: every damn C or A or T or G for every damn critter under the sun was there; I felt like I was drowning in facts. And there were facts at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research -- that part of the distributed Mecca of the Human Genome Project that's located in Cambridge, Mass. -- where I went next. And at the Hastings Center, the bioethical think tank in Garrison, N.Y."

"Facts were everywhere. But where was the genuine insight into ethical quandaries?"

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.
