Dr. Leroy Hood: ‘Biological Complexity Under Attack’
Dr. Leroy Hood wrote this piece about systems biology and big science for Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News. Read the article.
"This is a truly remarkable time in the biological sciences. Biology now has the opportunity to effectively attack some of the most fundamental problems of society, including healthcare, agriculture, bio-energy, a sustainable environment, and nutrition.
"These opportunities are a result of system strategies for probing biological complexity, emerging technologies that are allowing us to explore new dimensions of data space, and the provision of novel analytical tools for analyzing, integrating, and modeling large datasets."
