Towards Predictive Biology
In 2003, BBSRC launched a Ten-Year Vision for science in its remit, together with a new strategic plan for 2005-2008. The title of the Vision is Towards Predictive Biology. In this talk, Professor Goodfellow will discuss the rationale for such a Vision, and use examples to illustrate the way forward. The talk will explain how BBSRC intends to take up the opportunity to use the large amounts of data that biology is accumulating to understand the behaviour of organisms from molecules to populations.
