Plastics V. 5,642

Finally, us bio geeks will steal a march on the computer geeks. At least according to Freeman Dyson, nipped from IP:

It has become part of the accepted wisdom to say that the twentieth century was the century of physics and the twenty-first century will be the century of biology. Two facts about the coming century are agreed on by almost everyone. Biology is now bigger than physics, as measured by the size of budgets, by the size of the workforce, or by the output of major discoveries; and biology is likely to remain the biggest part of science through the twenty-first century. Biology is also more important than physics, as measured by its economic consequences, by its ethical implications, or by its effects on human welfare.

It's about getting my chocolate in your peanut butter. And vice versa.
