It is with awe and deep respect for the weighty accomplishments of those who have passed before me that I assume the title of Editor-in-Chief of Science, one of less than a handful of journals that can claim to represent the spectrum of scientific endeavors and a truly international audience of authors and readers. Each editor-in-chief has come to this position with his (and now her!) own vision of how to use this opportunity to benefit the scientific community. Bruce Alberts has left an important legacy that I hope to continue and build upon.
