Fortune editor noted that the 2013 Fortune’s 40 Under 40 deemed the year’s most important young innovators, risk-takers, and rule-breakers in business. They are rocking businesses as diverse as air travel, natural gas, and genetic coding, as well as government. Together on the list with Jun Wang includes Yahoo President and CEO Marissa Mayer, Twitter Co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey, Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Fortune’s 40 Under 40
Imagine a grain of rice that can suck pollutants out of the soil; or a cancer treatment so targeted and personalized it exists for only one person—you; or a worldwide database of not just every human's genetic code but the genomes of every living thing, a sort of biological Google. This is the work of Wang, a genomics professor and the director of gene-sequencing center BGI (formerly Beijing Genomics Institute). The institute generates about six terabytes of data a day, and it often falls on Wang to see the forest through the trees. He is a busy man: scientist, professor, author of more than 100 papers. His ultimate goal, he says, is to take these extraordinary things and sell them to ordinary people. It's already working. That depollutant rice may soon come to market.
