Bioinformatics has, out of necessity, become a key aspect of drug discovery in the genomic revolution, contributing to both target discovery and target validation. The author describes the role that bioinformatics has played and will continue to play in response to the waves of genome-wide data sources that have become available to the industry, including expressed sequence tags, microbial genome sequences, model organism sequences, polymorphisms, gene expression data and proteomics. However, these knowledge sources must be intelligently integrated.
