Gene editing uses a method called CRISPR that has rapidly become a research stalwart. It exploits a system that bacteria use to protect themselves from viruses and allows researchers to cut out selected genes and insert new ones.


You cannot even understand your own references. This has nothing to do with Benitec or ddRNAi or siRNA. It is a good job you were not one of my students. You would have gotten a big F for every paper you turned in.

If this isn't BLT I don't know what is. It basically highlights the advantages of siRNA without even mentioning it.

Does anyone know why these deadbeats are still getting paid? Or, what are they getting paid for? They do nothing. Nothing to be ÇEO of. And nothing for a salesman to sell.

All the smoke signals are looking good for something.

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe may be able to declare next week that the U.S. and Japan have all but completed their part of negotiations on a Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, Japan’s ambassador to the U.S. said.

Kenichiro Sasae said in Washington that while some issues remain to be settled on autos and agriculture, he hopes Abe and Obama will announce agreement on the trade pact when the Japanese leader visits the White House on April 28.

---------------------------------------------------

U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman early Tuesday morning concluded the latest round of negotiations in Tokyo. He characterized the talks as having “substantially narrowed” the differences with Japan.

That is about as much proof as you will ever need to know that everything is hanging in limbo until after the TPP Fast Track Authority vote.


Which doesn't necessarily mean the result of the vote will be publicly known. It does mean, it will be known to the power brokers.

Might be worth keeping an eye on ACW after the ALNY Amyloidosis update. Especially after the recent price appreciation.

If you want any proof the shorts are still in control look no further than ALNY today. That is about as much proof as you will ever need to know that everything is hanging in limbo until after the TPP Fast Track Authority vote.

Reckon they're waiting for the whistle to be blown for kick off viz the TPP.

Interview is interesting but not hopeful for BLT unfortunately. A significant premium is best hope.

For Pfizer and Merck—two big names that have ridden the merger wave—buying up more business is a possibility.

"I think we'll look segment by segment and we'll do acquisitions where it will strengthen our business," Pfizer CEO Ian Read said on CNBC Thursday in a "Power Lunch" interview.

Now the press is beginning to run stories about government deficits and financial instability wrought by a fall in housing prices, iron ore and in the case of NZ, dairy prices. As far as I know, when it comes to deficits the only way to stop them snowballing is to sell an asset or two. Which assets do we sell when all the power stations have been sold off?

Well, it's a game of two halves. You have the half before TPP. Then you have the half post TPP. A new world order in the words of George Bush I.

Post TPP, it will be all about biotech. Therefore, we can expect Big Daddy G to be selling off its biotech R&D. Because even though its the G's job to conduct unprofitable nascent R&D it is still required to get a return on the dollar spend. It then becomes the job of the private sector to commercialize the R&D. Preferably with the G as a equity partner. I suspect though they will have an eye to royalties from patents before dividends through equity. Just ask Mr. Washer from his time at Cellentis/AgResearch what outcomes were decided for commercialization of R&D.

Perhaps that's why CSIRO took over the administration of the BLT patent estate and gave up on their equity holding and the stand still clause.

Wonder what else they have to sell. In NZ its looking more and more like it will be AgResearch.

Would have liked to have seen HBV included in today's announcement by BLT. I guess we have to assume that the "broad" arrangement will allow for the licence to cover the HBV vector? I also guess that the vector has proven to be effective in transfecting liver cells, which was a point of contention before the trial started.
