""The idea is to collect this data from medical research and clinical environments and be able to make sense of it in ways that will drive down the cost of bringing new medicines to the people that need it," said Dr. John Reed, who heads the Burnham Institute in San Diego."
"Sun Microsystem's Howard Asher, director of Global Life Sciences in San Diego, worked with UCSD's Global Connect program to move ahead with the idea for developing standards."
""This (institute) is just one piece of many that can cut drug development time and cost to get a drug to market," said Dr. Jonathan Morris, chief executive of ProSanos. "It's not a magic bullet or panacea . . . but it does address part of the problem.""
“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
