In Eggi's Village, Harmony Rules by Consensus

   The University has established a Center for Bioinformatics, based on a new discipline that provides a scientific structure for the collection, management, analysis, and interpretation of the huge quantities of data being generated from large-scale biology projects throughout the world. The center is a coalition among Penn's Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Applied Science, and Arts and Sciences. Its base of operations is in the Institute for Medicine and Engineering.
   Dr. Chris Overton, the research associate professor of genetics who serves as the center's director, says that its design "will permit us to take advantage of the combined talents and contributions of many specialists -- from biomedical researchers to computer scientists to mathematicians."
