      • Biosensors & Biomolecular Interaction Analysis
      • There is no doubt that sequencing the human genome was an enormous technical achievement. But it didn't lead to the expected quantum leap in understanding protein function or the disease process. Instead, we began to appreciate the importance o ... more »
      • Creating and Educating a New Biotech Workforce
      • John Radford told colleagues at a recent meeting of the BayBio Workforce Committee that he has "some concern about where all these new hires are going to come from." Radford, the executive behind the biotechnology industry compensation gu ... more »
      • Expansion of Proteomic Databases Needed
      • Access to proteomic data lags "very much behind the DNA microarray field," says Edward Marcotte, Ph.D., associate professor in the department of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Texas, Austin (UTA). This paucity of large-sca ... more »
