New Biology is a completely new area of study going beyond the existing body of biology. It approaches biology with further integration and in closer collaboration with various scientific and technological fields, such as: the life sciences, physics, mathematics, engineering, computing, the humanities, and social sciences. In this sense, new biology has the potential to provide practical solutions to many of the major challenges confronting the world, whether they are environmental, medical, energy-related, or food-related issues.
New Biology aims to create a next-generation paradigm of knowledge, technology, and science in the era of new biology for sustainable human existence.
