Seventh Annual Young Investigators


In a fast-paced field like genomics, new ideas and approaches pop up quickly. To find who will be the field's leaders of tomorrow and who is putting 'omics tools to use to study the most fascinating problems, Genome Technology turned to today's established principal investigators for recommendations.
