How to applying for biotech faculty and industry jobs simultaneously?

I am applying for tenure-track molecular biology faculty positions in the US. My skills are also in high demand in industry. Offers for faculty jobs I apply to now should come anywhere from late Feb to early May with a lot of flexibility on how long I have for acceptance. I suppose that biotech industry positions will have a much shorter timescale from application to their decision and how long I have for mine, but I'm not entirely sure. If I want to maximize my options in the spring, when should I start inquiring about industry jobs? [more inside]

Biochemistry & Gene Therapy Filter

What's new and exciting in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics? I'm looking for an exciting/interesting journal article to present to my classmates along the lines of heterologous eukaryotic expression of a gene or gene therapy utilizing knockouts as a technique or with an emphasis on transgenic organisms. I could, of course, slog through the journals on my own and guess at what might be exciting in the field, but I thought I would ask the hive first. Any biochemists or molecular biologists out there want to give this a go? Citations would be incredibly helpful.
