I ::heart:: genomics   posted by p-ter @ 10/16/2007 09:31:00 PM

Jonathan Eisen points to a Newsweek article interviewing 10 high-profile scientists about the future of biology. I think it's fair to presume that the title (the Einsteins of the 21st century) is a bit hyperbolic, but if you're a genomics neophyte, you might glean something from it.

I really only mention it because of Dr. Eisen's post. If you're going to click through, read the interview first, then his response. And prepare to be puzzled. The comments on the post are good for a bit of a laugh, if you're in the right mood. I kind of imagine a professor walking down the hall, this article in hand, shaking his fist at the sky: "Damn you, Newsweek! You've done it again, you devious bastards!"
