Editor’s Note

After a little more than three years, BioCommerce Week will cease publishing with next week’s issue on December 19.
However, GenomeWeb remains committed to reporting on the business strategies, M&A activity, and finances of the life science tools industry. In order to reach a broader audience in 2008, much of the content that has been covered in these pages since the newsletter’s inception in September 2004 will continue to receive attention in an enhanced version of our GenomeWeb Daily News service, which is free to subscribers.
Subscribers to BioCommerce Week will be contacted directly in the next two weeks for options for the remaining issues left on their account.
