Curr Opin Biotechnol. 2000 Jun;11(3):232-5. doi: 10.1016/s0958-1669(00)00089-6.


Environmental biotechnology informatics is in its infancy and is growing fast. Computer and information science can assist environmental biotechnology by developing biological databases and building mathematical models of biological systems. Funding and training limitations in this field may, however, hinder its future growth.
