Summary

In 2013, Science's editors predict that single-cell sequencing will aid technological development for medical diagnostics for cancer and prenatal applications and that the Planck satellite will produce the most precise map yet of the afterglow of the big bang. Other areas to watch include the Human Connectome Project, expeditions to study subglacial Antarctic waters, cancer immunotherapy, and basic plant research.
