Wired Biotech Can Be Fun
"Scientists should quit fretting about how to classify organisms and start figuring out how to make biology a unifying influence for researchers, doctors and their patients, biology pioneer Dr. Leroy Hood said Tuesday."

""I think we can revolutionize and transform the teaching of biology if we look at it as an informational science," said Hood, who began his career at Caltech, where he developed some of the first DNA sequencing machines."

"He said the most important place for that shift to take place is in medical schools."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
