"About three billion As, Ts, Gs, and Cs make up the human genome sequence, but other organisms that are only slightly simpler can have up to 1000 times less DNA - implying that some human DNA is redundant, says Ewan Birney of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) in Cambridge, UK. So which sections of DNA are redundant, he asks, and which sections correspond to specific genetic traits?

The most challenging aspect of this question, says Birney who heads Ensembl, an EBI project set up to develop software to facilitate annotation of the growing volume of data on eukaryotic genomes, is how to search for genes in the human genome when it is not clear what those genes look like."

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.
