Industrial view of computer applications in the life sciences

Part of the FASEB Monographs book series (FASEBM, volume 2)


The phenomenal growth of the use of digital computation in such fields as airline reservations, hotel-chain record keeping, banks and credit agencies overshadows its much slower growth in such areas as biomedical research, retail stores and architecture. To the researcher, to the government agencies that sponsor biomedical research and to the layman, it seems inequitable that the benefits of computation flow so easily to ease the pain of the air traveler but still contribute so little to the life sciences.
