"Dr. Norman G. Heatley, an Oxford University biochemist who helped revolutionize medicine by isolating early samples of penicillin and helping to convert it into a powerful drug that gave Allied troops an advantage in World War II, died Jan. 5 at his home in Oxford, England, according to the university. He was 92.

Penicillin was first identified by Dr. Alexander Fleming in 1928, but his efforts to extract the active substance from its mold were unsuccessful. He published a paper on his discovery and moved on to other projects."

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.
