Look out, Silicon Valley

8-17, State: Is biotechnology corridor in making near Houston?
Houston, TX, is developing a potential “biotechnology corridor” drawing in life science companies using U Texas Health Science and NASA as foundation blocks. This follows a trend to see the future as requiring expertise in life science, not just electronics. Even in Silicon Valley a similar transformation is taking place. The alchemy of the ’90s can no longer transmute silicon alone into gold (i.e., IPOs, huge investments, high-paying jobs, etc.)
