Carnival of Biotechnology

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Carnival of Biotechnology. Some pretty good stuff this week. More Vioxx news, the human genome stops by for an update, and no love for the FDA.


SignalsMag provides an update on March financials: Modest Gains, Solid Quarter.

Following the the same vein, Pharma Marketing explains how the New England Journal of Medicine was Hoodwinked by Merck.
In another post, Pharma Marketing explains why the FDA’s grade just went from pass to fail.
