"Tom Kepler, a professor of biostatistics and bioinformatics, cited another problem. "To hire good faculty," he said, "we have to show we're really serious about computation. Attractive candidates are going to be expecting significant resources.""

"Duke's cluster farm takes the concept to the next step by allowing researchers to buy as many clusters as they need. They literally own the processors and determine their use, he said. "In no way are we trying to take control away from anybody," he emphasized. Researchers can buy different-sized "plots" of computer clusters for different-sized "crops" of research problems. The farm currently has 200 nodes, each with two processors, including a core cluster of 64 nodes. It's a work in progress, said Harer. CSEM will add capacity as it learns from the process both technical and administratively."

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.
