"A biotech "rock star" who headed a $200 million research center at the University of Buffalo is joining the faculty at Georgia Tech and bringing a band of 19 scientists with him.
Jeffrey Skolnick, a scientist in systems biology — a field that uses supercomputers to break down information in the genetic code in a quest to create new drugs — also will bring $1.5 million in grant funding to Tech.
Skolnick's arrival in Buffalo, N.Y., made headlines. The Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics, which he led, was regarded as a symbol of hope for the struggling upstate economy. He was regarded as the academic equivalent of a celebrity."
“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
