"Saying that the "future strength of the US [science and engineering] workforce is imperiled," the National Science Board (NSB) is urging increased federal funds to support US science students and improved science teaching."

"The situation in biology in general is not as dire as in the other natural sciences, George Langford, professor of biological sciences at Dartmouth and chair of the NSB Committee on Education and Human Resources, told The Scientist , but "it still is an area of concern, and that is particularly true in some of the fields of the life sciences." Langford said the problem is particularly acute in areas that require quantitative skills such as bioinformatics, protein structure, and crystallography."

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.
