February 2021 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

We’re running an omics theme this February. As part of this, we’re proud to boast a guest editorial from Jenny Van Eyk and John Yates, as well as our “Gurus of Omics” cover feature (in which experts from four separate omics disciples share their thoughts) – plus more! And there’s no reason to fret if omics isn’t your cup of tea: we’ve also included some quick conversations with our esteemed editorial advisory board, opinions pieces on capillary electrophoresis in the pharma industry and liquid biopsies, and a Solutions article on GC×GC from Tadeusz Górecki.
