A group of leading scientific organizations wrote to President-elect Trump to urge him to make scientific research and education a priority in his administration.

"Science has not been, nor do we think it should be, a partisan issue. Rather it is a public benefit," states the letter.

The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) led the letter. Read the letter and the full list of signatories at
