GEN Ten Top Life Science Tools and Technologies for 2012

As a life scientist, you make biotech go. You're the one on the front line, either at a university or a biotech or pharma company, and you play a key role in the research, development, manufacture, and commercialization of novel biotech diagnostics and therapeutics.

You probably also realize that technology serves as the critical driver for much, if not most, of your research. Indeed, would such a thing as modern biotechnology even exist were it not for the dozens and dozens of novel technologies that have been developed over the decades—many of which you rely on for your work?

GEN is taking a survey and we want you, practicing biotech researchers, engineers, and technicians, to tell us what you consider "THE" single, most important life science tool or technology that was introduced in 2012. We're asking you because you are in the best position to know. All major life science specialties, e.g., drug discovery, R&D, and bioprocessing, are fair game for the survey.

In the section below, please give us your selection of the most significant life science tool or technology to make its debut this year. Then, in 50-75 words, tell us why you made that choice. The survey closes on November 23, 2012 and the listing of the GEN Ten Top Life Science Tools and Technologies for 2012 will appear in the January 1, 2013 issue of GEN and on our website, www.genengnews.com, on January 2, 2013. The choice of the final GEN Ten Tools and Technologies will be made by members of GEN's Advisory Boards, based largely on the uniqueness and utility of the nominated technologies and by the descriptions provided by you, the submitting scientists, researchers, and technicians.

We welcome your nominations for the GEN Ten Top Life Science Tools and Technologies for 2012. We look forward to hearing from you!

All entrants who submit a nomination for the GEN Ten Top Life Science Tools and Technologies for 2012 survey will automatically be entered into a drawing and eligible to win the upcoming iPad mini.

Mindclones and Immortality

Is the idea of making a software copy of a human mind something in the realm of reality or science fiction?
