Abstract: In recent years, a new approach to scientific endeavour has emerged resulting from the breakdown of the traditional barriers between academic disciplines and the application of technologies across these disciplines. Parallel and interleaved developments in science and technology have provided the potential to transform the way science is done. This new approach has profound implications for the entire research process and presents challenges both in technological design, and in our understanding of this new form of science, for the provision of infrastructure and training, in the organisation of research groups, and in providing suitable research funding mechanisms and reward systems. These challenges need to be addressed if the promise of this new approach is to be fully realised. In this paper, we will draw on preliminary observations of the Integrative Biology project to discuss organisational and technological challenges of large-scale multi-disciplinary scientific research.
