Seven Technologies

This week’s issue of TheScientist has a fascinating (mostly free) supplement on seven technologies that are transforming life sciences research:

Each of our chosen seven, the DNA sequencer, the BLAST algorithm, the DNA microarray, the yeast two-hybrid assay, the MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer, the lab-on-a-chip, and the optical trap – is in its own way shaking the foundation of life science research. As a group, they tell the story of the past and future of molecular biology.
