Tips/FAQ for these glossaries


Where's my stuff? Information overload, taxonomies & beyond

Roger Brent said in his opening remarks for the 2000 After the Genome meeting in Jackson Hole Wyoming "current efforts to come to grips with genomic information often resemble computer-savvy library science, where the most important issues concern categories, classification schemes and information retrieval…What we would actually like to achieve, however, is a predictive understanding of  biological function. The goal here is a true computational biology that will be able to make functional predictions from available genomic data [italics added]             book
