"The sequence of deals, intrigue and lawsuits would not have raised an eyebrow in the art world. But the target this time was a collection of scientific papers from the early days of molecular biology, a set that some scientists had hoped to buy for an archive at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island."
Instead, it has been bought for several million dollars by J. Craig Venter, the maverick biologist who forced the government to a draw in a race to produce a draft sequence of the human genome."
"Dr. Venter has long been given the cold shoulder by the molecular biology establishment because of his audacious ideas for decoding DNA, particularly that of the human genome. These ideas have sometimes been rejected for government financing by establishment scientists, whereupon Dr. Venter has raised private money to show that his ideas work."
“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
