Fifth Annual Young Investigators


There are many researchers doing great work in systems biology. For our search to uncover the brightest minds — profiled here — Genome Technology turned to the established pros of the field to recommend those young researchers who are rising stars. This series wouldn't be possible without that insight. GT would like to thank all those who responded to our requests for recommendations.
