  16. 16. What we ARE doing: •  Funding data science environments that welcome biologists •  Supporting investigators in biology and life sciences who demonstrate the skills needed •  Funding projects that enable and promote training the biology workforce •  Getting involved in discussions about training data scientists What we ARE NOT doing: •  Directly funding Biology-focused projects/tools •  Directly funding formal data science education
