Science publishing is over 300 years old but now faces a challenge as never before: the Internet. Publishers need to develop new products to improve the information available to the end-user. This will demand new ways of thinking about how science is presented and also about how publishers can make money from it.
A technological explosion is on the horizon that will revolutionize the testing platforms available for molecular diagnostics. Soon, the instrumentation and technology will be made available to quantitate pathogens rapidly and precisely, detect genetic mutations or polymorphisms and provide answers to questions relating to pathogenesis, host immunity and drug resistance.
