"Computational biologists need to be aware of available resources and consistently practice code sharing and reuse. To aid in this, several collaborative initiatives are attempting to provide easy-to-use, open source interfaces for managing life sciences data. However, design and maintenance of these APIs is presenting its own challenges. In this article, we will explore some of the Java-based bioinformatics APIs that are being developed to reduce the amount of time developers spend (re)implementing common tasks and complex data structures. We will also address some of the challenges that are being faced by API-level developers in the life sciences."
“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.”BIOINFORMATICS IN THE 21st CENTURY
