"Training as a geneticist or genomicist today involves mastering a lot more than the mendelian ratios, central dogma and population equations of times past. Not only has the conceptual focus shifted from genes to genomes, but that change has added the new realm of bioinformatics. As a result, today's genetic scientists have skill sets that dwarf those of their mentors."

"Over the past few years, familiarity with, if not expertise in, bioinformatics has become not just desirable, but expected. "Classical and molecular genetics are still part of the training, but it is hard to believe that anyone with a PhD in genetics nowadays would not also have a background in bioinformatics," says Richard Gregory, director of research at Genzyme in Cambridge, Massachusetts."

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.
