Biological Databases and Informatics. (n.d.). Biological Databases and Informatics. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The National Science Foundation (NSF) believes that future advances in the biological sciences will depend both upon the creation of new knowledge and upon effective management of proliferating information. The biological sciences have become increasingly data rich. Developing integrated views of species, development and evolution, documenting species diversity and tracking long-term environmental change are just a few examples of biological research programs that generate and require large amounts of archival information. Much of the biology of tomorrow will arise through discovery based on information contained in community-accessible databases. Much, if not all, of our accumulated knowledge of biology will be accessible in electronic form. Future progress in biological research will be highly dependent on the ability of the scientific community to both deposit and utilize stored information on-line. Thus, the information management challenge for the future will be to develop new ways to acquire, store and retrieve not only biological data per se, but also those data in the context of biological knowledge. The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO), through the Division of Biological Infrastructure (DBI), announces a cross-disciplinary effort to support the design, development, implementation, and use of information resources and tools. All fields of science supported by BIO are eligible for support under this Biological Databases and Informatics (BD&I) program. The mission of the BD&I Program is to encourage new approaches to the management of biological knowledge that render the collection, maintenance, dissemination and query of the data and information therein of greater utility to the scientific community. This program will not support disease-oriented research, including the etiology, diagnosis or treatment of physical or mental disease, abnormality or malfunction in human beings or animals, or the design and testing of drugs for treatment of such conditions is not appropriate for consideration.
