  2. 2. Problem
  3. 3. Systems Biology Biologists Computer Scientists Statisticians → Different Levels of Computing Skills
  4. 4. One Common Aspects They are busy!
  5. 5. They like All-in-One Solution / Tools
  6. 6. This MANIFESTO counters current trends in bioinformatics where institutes and companies are creating monolithic software solutions aimed mostly at end-users.
  7. 7. All-in-one, monolithic solution is great if and only if such tool exists for your workflows
