It was bound to happen - between a biotech industry capable of cloning pigs whose organs won't be rejected by the human body and the technology behind it, there had to be a
opportunity for a new tech pub. Bio-IT World Inc., IDG's latest business unit, is launching Bio-IT World, scheduled to debut in March. The pub will focus on the convergence of
information technology and life sciences, including the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, biochemical, healthcare and agricultural industries. The audience will be life sciences
pros involved in bioinformatics, drug discovery and development, genomics, proteomics and related disciplines. Kevin Davies, the founding editor of Nature Genetics and author of
the book Cracking the Genome: Inside the Race to Unlock Human DNA, is the new editor-in-chief.
