"The Center for Gene Research and Biotechnology at Oregon State University has changed its name and its emphasis.
The center in Corvallis, which was formed in 1983, is now the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing.
The new name reflects an ongoing revolution in the biological sciences -- the merger of biology with advanced computational science, said Jim Carrington, professor and director of the center.
"The conversion of biology into an information-based science allows much bigger and more difficult questions to be addressed," Carrington said. "In addition to research focusing on single genes and proteins, we're now studying entire genomes and populations of genomes, enabled by powerful advances in technology and computational systems. This represents a major forefront in biological research, and the center is a key part of how OSU is building leadership in this area.""
“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
