David Botstein has been tapped to head Princeton University’s Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. Currently Stanford Ascherman Professor of Genetics at Stanford University, Botstein will head east to begin his new position July 1, 2003. Princeton is now completing construction on the institute, which is slated to house between 12 and 15 research groups specializing in post-genomic science.

Nonlinear Dynamics reported last week that Alan Koontz, the company’s general manager for Asia Pacific, passed away in Tokyo September 16 following a sudden heart attack. Koontz’s funeral was held on September 27 at a ceremony at Pierce Brothers Valhalla Cemetery, North Hollywood, California. John Spreadbury, group sales and marketing director at Nonlinear Dynamics, is handling inquiries.
