In 2010, Science's editors will be watching for developments with induced pluripotent stem cells, which can be coaxed to develop into various mature cell types and promise to usher in a new wave of research; an innovative space-based particle physics experiment called the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer; "exome sequencing," in which the protein-coding DNA of thousands of people's genomes is sequenced in hopes of finding new genes underlying human diseases; beating cancer by disrupting the metabolism of tumor cells; and human space flight.
