"Vitacolonna isn't alone in abandoning a good project at the end of his postdoc term. It's a ritual of many a bioinformatician. If a person's postdoc project is wildly successful and published in multiple journals, he or she can continue overseeing the program in a junior professor job. If it's just ho-hum work, the creator will probably move on to more interesting projects on the next step up the career ladder.

In the field of bioinformatics, this process, which results in programs known as abandonware, has a debilitating impact."

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.
