Cells are being genetically modified in labs all over the world for different purposes: from curing diseases to making ecological biofuels. Scientists are predicting cells behaviour using all kinds of computer models. There is a lot of accumulated knowledge in the field, but lack of compatibility and reusability of software is a huge obstacle on the way to greater science. Microservices concept fits naturally to the task of connecting and scaling software built by research teams with different backgrounds spread across different countries. We will talk about, what kind of software modern biology has and needs, how microservices architecture can boost up scientific collaboration and what are the challenges on the way.
