Shannon's goal in bioinformatics and computational biology is to use exploratory and confirmatory data analysis, upon inference, and upon modeling to eventually permit the prediction and control of complex biological systems. He believes network visualizations -- molecular maps -- created from an open-ended programming environment rich in statistical power and data-handling facilities, such as RCytoscape, will play an essential role in this progression.
