The following text presents some personal ideas about the way (bio)informatics2 is heading, along with some examples of how our institution – the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) – is gearing up for these new times ahead. It tries to find the important trends amongst the buzzwords, and to demonstrate how these will benefit the biological and scientific community. This text is based on a presentation given at the 7th Flora Malesiana Symposium in Leiden, The Netherlands, June 2007.
