New Biology for the 21st Century
Ensuring the United States Leads the Coming Biology RevolutioneBook - 2009
Now more than ever, biology has the potential to contribute practical solutions to many of the major challenges confronting the United States and the world. "A New Biology for the 21st Century" recommends that a "New Biology" approach--one that depends on greater integration within biology, and closer collaboration with physical, computational, and earth scientists, mathematicians and engineers--be used to find solutions to four key societal needs: sustainable food production, ecosystem restoration, optimized biofuel production, and improvement in human health. The approach calls for a coordinated effort to leverage resources across the federal, private, and academic sectors to help meet challenges and improve the return on life science research in general.
