"Intel Corp. is sharing technology originally developed to detect computer chip contaminants with a major Seattle cancer research center to help it detect subtle diagnostic markers for cancer and other diseases."

""The goal is to determine if this technology, previously used to detect microscopic imperfections on silicon chips, can also detect subtle traces of disease,'' said Andrew Berlin, the lead researcher in Intel's Precision biology program."

"Intel already uses a type of Raman analyzer to examine and detect defects in the transistors on its microchips, which are expected to approach 10 billionths of a meter (nanometer) in size by 2011, according to Andrew Berlin, the lead researcher with Intel's Precision Biology program.

Biological samples are much larger than this, said Berlin. Viruses, for example, tend to be in the 100 nanometer range, or about twice the size of the 50-nanometer transistors made using Intel's state-of-the-art 90 nanometer process, he said."

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.
