Computer power is transforming the sciences, giving scientists tools as important to current research as the microscope and telescope were to earlier scientists. Computer power not only aids research, it defines the nature of that research: what can be studied, what new questions can be asked, and answered. So-called Web 2.0 software, with its seamless linking of applications, has made it easier to share research findings, and that in turn has led to an explosion of collaborative efforts. It has also accelerated the range of cross-disciplinary projects as it has become easier to repurpose and combine software-based techniques ranging from analytical tools to utilities for exporting and importing data.
