Hale, S S. SPECIES DATABASES AND THE BIOINFORMATICS REVOLUTION. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/N-02/004, 2001.

Description:

Biological databases are having a growth spurt. Much of this results from research in genetics and biodiversity, coupled with fast-paced developments in information technology. The revolution in bioinformatics, defined by Sugden and Pennisi (2000) as the "tools and techniques for storing, handling, and communicating the massive and ever-increasing amounts of biological data emerging principally from genomics research," has given biodiversity databases a boost.
