Liposome vesicles - human DNA sequence - deforestation


A panel of world-class scientists (the 2020 Science group) with areas of expertise encompassing among others computer science, biology, chemistry, physics, transport and medicine were asked to consider the impact of computer science and computing on science over the next fifteen years.

Participants submitted a position paper on the topic 'Towards 2020 Science' prior to meeting for a two-day workshop in the summer of 2005. At the workshop, participants interacted and brainstormed in the presence of a roadmapping expert (Dr Robert Phaal, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge), further help from additional expert contributors was sought.

The result is a timely, provocative and stimulating report.
