"A Century Without Biology: The Extinction Crisis, Biotechnology, and the Suppression of Scientific Inquiry", a lecture by Dr. Chapela will be followed by interactive discussion with the university communities at Berkeley and Columbia, Missouri.

Some have forecast the 21st Century as the Age of BioTechnology. We have indeed witnessed an unprecented increase in our capacity and willingness to radically alter living systems through technological interventions. Yet, the science of Biology has not kept apace and we have seen, since the Inquisition, such suppression and manipulation of biological inquiry. Together, these trends may mean an epoch defined by large biological transformations-with an absence of infrastructure, physical and conceptual, to confront it. What is the character of this century without Biology? What are the possible options to weather its effects?

Central to our discussion are questions of organization and action to support existing biological and human resources to confront the next century.
