Begun in 1984, and known for its generally theoretical and modeling approaches to scientific questions, the Santa Fe Institute (New Mexico) is a private, non-profit, multidisciplinary center dedicated to pursuing novel approaches to research and education in science. Areas of research range from adaptive computation, to ecology, to economics, to the origin of life. Each of the fourteen research areas is annotated. Users can search information on current faculty, postdoctoral fellows, research technicians, and graduate and undergraduate interns, as well as abstracts and/or full texts of several hundred working papers of the institute (in various formats) since 1992. Several Nobel Laureates have worked at the center; top scientists in a number of fields are attracted to its seminar series (abstracts provided at the site).
