By John Russell

April 1, 2008 | As this issue of Bio•IT World goes to press, judges are debating the merits of a record-setting 54 entries in our 2008 Best Practices Awards. We'll be announcing the winners in our next issue and producing a special report highlighting their success later in the year. In the meantime, our sincere thanks to everyone who took the trouble to submit their stories for our deliberation. Best of luck!
