Publisher's Summary

The task of sequencing all human DNA is all but done, but mining the mountains of genetic information for pay dirt is just beginning. The new fields of bioinformatics and proteomics hold the keys to multibillion-dollar biotech industries of the future. From Scientific American, hear what's next in human genome research. With all of the DNA codes for a human in hand, the challenge then becomes what to make of it. Some of the first fruits will come from a new field called proteomics, reported by Carol Ezzell in "Beyond the Human Genome." Also in this edition, the search for extraterrestrials. But does the lack of proof preclude the existence of a Galactic Empire? Other stories include "Intergalactically Speaking," and in the Technology and Business section, "spray-on dressings," a convicted hacker speaks out, and "Anti-Gravity."
