"A new discipline has bloomed at the intersection of biology and computer science. Called bioinformatics, it is already so far advanced that many life scientists spend more time at their computers than they do at the laboratory bench. They gobble processing power like peanuts, burying themselves in the massive comparison of genes and the chemical instructions the genes issue to the body's cells.

"Massive" took on new meaning in September, when Paul G. Allen, cofounder of Microsoft Corp., in Redmond, Wash., unveiled the greatest bioinformatics initiative yet: a map called the Allen Brain Atlas, indicating which of 20 000 genes is doing what in the brain and where it is doing it."

"Researchers will create a research tool that will be accessible to the public and will overlay the brain's structural imagery with details about locations and functions of active genes in the brain, according to a statement announcing the institute and the financial pledge.

Allen Institute co-founder Jo Allen Patton and project director Dr. Mark Boguski, a researcher in bioinformatics and genomics, will lead the Atlas project team. The institute and project Web site is at "

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.
