Year of the Gene Chip

Feature image and link. The human genome is a tough act to follow. But genomics continued to dominate science news this year. Researchers sequenced the genome of the parasite that causes malaria and the mosquito that transmits it. They sequenced the anthrax bacterium, the genome of the mouse, and the genomes of several types of rice.

But this year may be best remembered as the year of the gene chip. This versatile tool—a microchip spotted with thousands of genes—is currently the hottest and most promising genomic gadget.
