US President Barack Obama is bringing a "stellar list of scientists" to work for the federal government, writes James Gentile, from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement, in the Huffington Post. Francis Collins, he adds, is just the latest scientist to be confirmed. Gentile says that Collins is just the person to help build a new high-tech-based economy. "The Human Genome Project undoubtedly will provide part of the solid foundation that America requires for a booming 21st-century economy, so who better to direct America's efforts to expand that foundation than Dr. Collins?" Gentile writes.
