I've spent more than two decades in science publishing as an editor, author, and now publisher. I'm the founding editor of Nature Genetics and Bio-IT World, and the author of three books, most recently THE $1,000 GENOME.
After degrees from Oxford University and the University of London, I moved to the United States 25 years ago. I moved into science publishing in 1990, joining the editorial staff of Nature magazine. I've also worked at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Cell Press, where I was the editorial director. I'm currently VP Business Development at the American Chemical Society and publisher of Chemical & Engineering News.
I'm the author of three books: BREAKTHROUGH (1995, co-authored with Michael White); CRACKING THE GENOME (2000) -- published in the UK as THE SEQUENCE and translated into 15 languages; and most recently, THE $1,000 GENOME (Free Press, 2010).
I served as the genetics consultant on the 2012 film Decoding Annier Parker, starring Helen Hunt and Samantha Morton.
