"I came to biotech largely because I saw opportunities in market research and analysis, an area done to death in IT. There is virtually no one doing this sort of work in biotech, and now I know why. Biotech does not have end users in the way IT does. We all benefit from biotech discoveries but we don't go out and buy them the same way we buy computers.

That means there aren't a lot of vendors chasing a lot of users, which explains why there are so few biotech magazines - there is not the advertising base to support them. But it also means that it is virtually virgin territory for someone like me. Not only is there very little data about the industry, there is not even any agreement on the data to develop some industry metrics."

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.
