"Stories about such rescues from death's door have given hope to tens of thousands of cancer patients who have tried Iressa, made by the British company AstraZeneca. But, maddeningly, only about one in 10 of them benefit significantly. And doctors have been unable to predict which patients will win this rare reprieve.

Now two groups of scientists say they have the answer: The people who improve sharply have a genetic mutation in their tumors that makes their disease highly vulnerable to the drug."

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.
