LinuxToday: Life Sciences Industry Turns to Linux and IBM

Submitter ``The Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) has selected IBM to provide its infrastructure technology. ISB will use IBM [Linux] servers, storage and data integration products to support its research on protein-protein interactions to better understand and predict diseases, and identify potential preventions and treatments.

```As we looked over the landscape of various computer companies to determine which ones we should be working with, IBM was clearly our first choice,' said Professor George Lake, ISB faculty member. `It was critical to have a technology partner who understood our research goals. IBM does everything -- they are a leader in high-performance computing, Linux clusters, storage and hierarchical data management, and all of this ties back to people in IBM's research labs working on basic technologies, data federation and bioinformatics.'''

Does anyone know if there is a future (career -->money) in developing 'the raw mined data' and presenting them in easily understandable visual formats/animations?
