"In a keynote address, Nathan Myhrvold, former chief technology office at Microsoft and now managing director of a private entrepreneurial firm called Intellectual Ventures, said that Moore's Law--which states that the number of transistors on a microprocessor would double approximately every 18 months--was applicable to a plethora of increasingly cost-efficient, sequenced "omes," including the entire "biome." GenBank itself, said Myhrvold, is doubling roughly every 18 months, a 60% growth rate.

But in order to efficiently address the multitude of computational projects--to, as Jakobsson put it, integrate all computational tools so that "they'll all work together like the office tools on your desktop"--better connected labs with better integrated data will be necessary."

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.
