BERKELEY, Calif.--The University of California, Berkeley, has launched a $500 million health sciences initiative to link biological and physical sciences and engineering to foster medical advances, and is recruiting bioinformatics specialists to take part. Bioinformatics, genomics, and proteomics will be important parts of the program that seeks to involve as many as 400 researchers--from fields such as the biological sciences, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, psychology, and public health--in interdisciplinary research. Scientists at the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory also will participate.
