Magazine taps Pennsylvania as biotech leader

Business Facilities magazine came up with its own formula for assessing states' strength in the biotech economic development field and decided that Pennsylvania came in first. The assessment, which included a number of factors that included education, business climate and quality of life, concluded that California and Massachusetts tied for second with Ohio and Texas coming in at a tie for fourth place. Others on the top 10 list: Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Florida, Kansas and Minnesota.
