Video: A meditation on biological modeling

Why have modeling approaches yet to be embraced in the mainstream of biology, in the way that they have been in other fields such as physics, chemistry and engineering? What would the ideal biological modeling platform look like? How could the connectivity of the internet be leveraged to play a central role in tackling the enormous challenge of biological complexity? Presented at SciFoo 2009, this short video takes a lighthearted look at the future of biological modeling.
