With the prevalence of structural and genomic data, molecular biology has become a human-guided,computer-assisted endeavor. The computer assists the essential human function in two ways: For exploring scientific data, it searches for and tests scientific hypotheses. For collaborating between two or more scientists, it shares knowledge and expertise. As databases grow, as structure and process models become more complex, and as software methods become more diverse, access and manipulation of digital information is increasingly a critical issue for research and collaboration in molecular biology.
