The Future for Biology

Postby James » Mon Mar 28, 2005 12:04 am

In the future, what fields are most likely to yeild the next major innovations/discoveries in biology. It would appear that evolution is generally accepted nowadays. In the future, will there ever be anything discovered/reported that is as influential as Darwin's theory within biology?

What would be biology's version of physicist's search for the theory/equation of everything?

We don't know if there is anything that will be discovered until it is :D :D
The most discoveries will deffinetly be made in genetics

If humans can ever rationalize or develop ways to clone, I think it would be a major breakthrough.

Genetics :D

Cloning will present religious and ethical problems

Perhaps find Jesus' DNA, and bring him back; although he might not be too happy about it.

I would say that human cloning is already taking place (opinion :D ) The greatest breakthroughs will definitely be in genetic engineering which will cascade down to the other biological careers such as medical science, botany, etc.
