"Increasing adoption of computational biology tools in today’s drug discovery is the industry’s attempt to compensate for shrinking product pipelines as the industry also expects to reduce the duration of the drug discovery process, especially in toxicology and drug efficacy studies."

"Frost and Sullivan's latest report details the increase in royalty and milestone payment agreements, which is strengthening strategic partnerships between computational biology tools vendors and drug discovery companies. This, in turn, is nurturing the faster adoption of these tools in drug discovery.

However, the report was quick to point out that the adoption of these tools were still in the initial stage. As pharmaceutical companies that have invested heavily in computational tools after the Human Genome Project are yet to see any tangible returns, there exists a natural scepticism about their efficacy."

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.
