Life Science and Bioinformatics
Much focus within biological research today is on genomics and post-genomics characterized by mass production of scientific data. Research centers and institutions, as well as small local, and big international companies, are driven by the scientific and/or the monetary aspects of this specific field of study. Data and results are produced within genomic projects everyday thanks to increasingly powerful, innovative and fast computers and software. However, as of now, there is yet no single tool that fully supports the necessary capitalization of knowledge within the field of genomics and that supports cooperation among the primary actors within this specific field; biologists, bioanalysts, bioinformaticians and administrators. Thus, there is a need for environments that offers simplified access to resources, freed from computational barriers, and where the various players in the field of biology can be given room to develop and improve their processes and enrich their knowledge within their field.

Famous quotes containing the words life and/or science:
“What if there are not only two nostrils, two eyes, two lobes, and so forth, but two psyches as well, and they are separately equipped? They go through life like Siamese twins inside one person.... They can be just a little different, like identical twins, or they can be vastly different, like good and evil.”
—Norman Mailer (b. 1923)
“Human Nature is the only science of man; and yet has been hitherto the most neglected.”
—David Hume (17111776)
