The systems biology revolution is proceeding along multiple pathways as different science agencies and the private sector have adopted strategies suited to their particular needs and cultures. To meet this challenge, the U.S. Department of Energy has developed the Genomes to Life (GTL) program. A central focus of GTL is environmental microbial biology as a… (More)
This paper describes three strategies for developing highly reusable software components in Ada-95. The first is an analysis strategy utilizing use cases for discovery of the architectural components. The second is a design strategy aimed at achieving reusability through minimization of changes. The classical object-oriented methods tend to create close… (More)
Genome to life (GTL), the U.S Department of Energy Office of Science's systems biology program, focuses on environmental microbiology. Over the next 10 to 20 years, GTL's key goal is to understand the life processes of thousands of microbes and microbial systems in their native environments. This focus demands that we address huge gaps in knowledge,… (More)

A key goal of the DOE Office of Science's systems biology program, Genomes to Life (GTL), is to achieve, over the next 10 to 20 years, a basic understanding of thousands of environmental microbes and microbial systems in their native environments. This goal demands that we develop new models for scientific discovery that integrate methods and systems which… (More)
