<p>In the life sciences, the need to balance the costs and benefits of introducing software processes into a research environment presents a distinct set of challenges due to the cultural disconnect between life sciences research and software engineering. The Institute for Systems Biology's research informatics team has studied these challenges and developed a software process to address them.</p>
