The changing role of the bench scientist

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 09-24-2010

SciveeTV is a leading provider of internet video and rich media solutions for the scientific, technical and medical market and contains many interesting scientific videos and food for deeper thought. One of my favorite videos is a talk by Dr. Steve Jones, head of bioinformatics in the Genome Sciences Centre at the BC Cancer Agency. In his talk, Dr. Jones describes how biology has changed over the years and proposes that traditional bench scientist will end up spending more time on computational analysis than on the bench itself.
