 Open Source in the Biosciences

Have you ever wondered about the technical software developments that will matter most in bioinformatics over the next year? Bioinformatics and the use of open source in the biosciences are both still in the take-off phase. There are two kinds of bioscience and open source is important to both, but in different ways. The first kind of bioscience is "small" bioscience: natural history, paleontology, limnology, and other traditional pursuits. "Small" referring to budget constraints. The other kind is the biosciences or bioinformatics you see mentioned in business or technology circles.
