The year 2012 has witnessed seminal advances in the field of science, such as definitive proof of the existence of the Higgs boson, the Curiosity rover landing on Mars and developments in genomics, cancer and stem cell research. Roundtable Review featured articles covering such major breakthroughs in science and biotechnology, in addition to articles on science basics, policy, event coverage, and interviews that were well received by our readers. We present Roundtable Review 2012: Year In Review, a list of our ten most popular and prominent articles from 2012.
