GT would like to introduce four new columnists, who are the editors of our GenomeWeb sister publications. Starting with this issue, you’ll get the latest from them on bioinformatics, proteomics, microarrays and gene expression, and SNP/genotyping.

Julia Karow, editor of ProteoMonitor since last October and former editor of BioArray News, has a biochemistry background, with an undergraduate degree from the University of Witten/Herdecke in Germany and a PhD in protein biochemistry from the University of Oxford. Before joining GenomeWeb, she interned with Scientific American and NPR’s Science Friday.

Mo Krochmal, editor of BioArray News since last October, is an award-winning veteran of nearly 20 years in journalism, including the last 10 years covering the science and commerce of technology for a wide number of publications, including The New York Times and CMP Media. He holds degrees from North Carolina State University and the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University.

Kirell Lakhman, editor of SNPtech Reporter, which he launched this January, was previously the editor of GenomeWeb’s daily news website. He was a pharmaceutical and biotech correspondent for Reuters and covered a range of clinical specialties for a New York medical publishing firm.

Bernadette Toner, editor of BioInform since January 2001, spent three years at Technical Insights, a newsletter division of John Wiley & Sons (now part of Frost & Sullivan), where she reported for several titles, including Inside R&D, FutureTech, Nanotech Alert, and Advanced Manufacturing Technology. She is a graduate of Rutgers University and makes a mean margarita.
