Technological advances in the second half of the twentieth century have been dominated by two fields: computer science and computational molecular biology. The genome sequence projects currently underway represent the first major convergence of these two fields and have led to the birth of a new subdiscipline, bioinformatics. Twenty-four completed genomes are publicly available on the web as of October, 1999. In the post-genomic era, when complete genomes are known for many species and even for many individual organisms within a species, the volume of sequence data available will require increasingly sophisticated computational analyses. I come to bioinformatics from the field of artificial intelligence.
