I read your recent editorial and would like to make a few comments, with the cloak of anonymity. I have been working in startup biotech companies for over 10 years. I live in the Bay Area and have a number of friends in the biotech industry. I read a number of different journals, and recently discovered your magazine.
I was immediately struck by the interesting mixture of technological information, business articles, and gossip. It is a good mix. What a refreshing change to read about people speaking openly of layoffs in a trade journal. Other journals tend to ignore or whitewash the cutthroat aspects of the industry, but you don’t and that is what makes your magazine interesting and unique.
You should continue with your open and slightly subversive style, applying it to the biotech industry as a whole. No need to limit yourself to just genomics.
