"Nathan Myhrvold has been doing the rounds recently. One month after he was interviewed by Bio·IT World, there he was again, popping up in Technology Review. In that interview, he made one particularly provocative statement, that heavy reliance on relational databases like Oracle, SQL, and DB2 within the field of proteomics and genomics is "completely boneheaded."
Myhrvold did not elaborate, and as an entrepreneur he might not want to comment further. But let us suppose that his assessment is largely correct. What are some of the implications?"[ via nodalpoint ]
“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
