Arzberger, P., Farazdel, A., Konagaya, A., Ang, L., Shimojo, S., Stevens, R. “Life Sciences and Cyberinfrastructure: Dual and Interacting Revolutions that will Drive Future Science”, New Generation Computing (2004), Vol. 22, no. 2, pp. 97.

ABSTRACT: Over the past quarter century, two revolutions, one in bio-medicine, the other in computing and information technology leading to cyberinfrastructure, have made the largest advances and the most significant impacts on science, technology, and society. The interface between these areas is rich with opportunity for major advances. The Life Sciences Grid Research Group (LSG-RG) of the Global Grid Forum recognized the opportunities and needs to bring the communities together to ensure the cyberinfrastructure will be constructed for the benefit of science. This article gives an overview of the area, the activities of the LSG-RG, and the minisymposium organized by LSG-RG, and introduces the papers in this Special Issue of New Generation Computing.
