"Although most botanists remain diehard fans of Linnaean nomenclature, the system does throw up a problem. When new research shifts a species from one group into another, it has to swap names to reflect its new position. Tomato, for example, can go under both Solanum lycopersicum and Lycopersicon esculentum.

Because of such problems, a renegade band of scientists wants to ditch Linnaeus' names for a system called the PhyloCode, which names organisms according to their evolutionary relationships. Linnaeus' scheme places organisms in groups based on shared characteristics that do not necessarily reflect their position on the evolutionary tree."

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.
