I wore a suit to mine. I think it shows you're taking the interview seriously and also gives you an air of authority when presenting etc. Much better to be over dressed than under dressed
I agree with bunker that it depends on the culture, but if you don't have that kind of information, I would say that if in doubt, wear a suit. It shows that you're serious about the job and want to make a good impression. It's much better to risk being more smartly-dressed than your interviewers than the other way around.
A suit is good but, some people are not comfortable in a suit. I personally think that smart and comfortable is best.
It does depend on the culture, as others have suggested.
Just wear a formal dress because there is no rule for any interview that you must wear the professional dress which they decide.
I think you will find you are overdressed if you wear a suit.
Probably depends on the field though. Biology is very casual.
