The ungood earth

According to Demos, a UK think tank that studied science and innovation potential in China, the country is at an early stage in the most ambitious programme of research investment since John F Kennedy embarked on the race to the moon. Demos cite Chinese achievements in biomedicine and nanotechnology to illustrate this point. Sibiono Gentech, one of the many biotech units growing in technology parks around China's major cities, claims a pioneering cure for cancer via gene therapy. Chinese scientists describe it as "a milestone of the order of penicillin".
