Technologies for biological research arise in multiple ways-through serendipity, through inspired insights, and through incremental advances-and they are tightly coupled to progress in engineering. Underlying the complex dynamics of technology and biology are the different motivations of those who work in the two realms. Consideration of how methodologies emerge has implications for the planning of interdisciplinary centers and the training of the next generation of scientists.
