"Science is too important and the scientific process too complex to leave to the "tyranny" of the network news sound bite, contends a small California-based group trying to generate support for an entire television network devoted to unadulterated science. Modeling their proposed science channel on the nonprofit Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network (C-SPAN), the group is seeking seed money from investor angels or foundations to move forward with the idea whose time, they believe, has come.

"We now have more than 100 channels on cable, so it seems that to me there ought to be one of them devoted to some serious scientific discussion," said Terry Sejnowski, head of the Salk Institute's Computational Neurobiology Laboratory, who is serving as advisory board chair for the fledgling "Cable Science Network" (CSN) initiative."

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.
