Biology Loves Technology

The slimy, messy world of biology and the clean, logical world of computing can make the perfect combination. In fact, sometimes it turns out it’s the computing that’s slimy and the biology that’s logical. Computer scientists and biologists are teaming up, and finding that they are good at helping one another.

cs4fn has teamed up with Centre of the Cell to publish a book of facts from the combined worlds of biology and computing, called Biology Loves Technology.
