The computer sciences have had a major impact on research and development in the physical sciences and engineering over the past several decades. Their influence on biological research has developed less rapidly. Computer sciences have assumed a more important role in biological and medical research as hardware has become more sophisticated, more widely available, and as its capabilities have been appreciated. The applicability of computers to many facets of biological research is on the threshold of further advances because these applications appear to be maximally efficient and useful at minimized costs. However, monetary constraints over the next several years may delay the extent to which further applications are pursued.
