Norman Dovichi, Endowed Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Washington, has been named Associate Editor of Analytical Chemistry. He will oversee review of manuscripts in DNA sequencing, high throughput analysis, analysis of single biological cells, single-molecule spectroscopy, and related topics. Analytical Chemistry is the leading journal for publication of research in new instrumentation and technology for chemical characterization of biological, environmental, and other systems. Dr. Dovichi is a leader in basic research into instrumentation for genomics, proteomics and related fields, and contributed the key technologies for the instrumentation that enabled the rapid sequencing of the complete human genome. The Office of Science funded his studies of DNA sequencing technology and currently supports his research in the Genomes to Life program.
