A List of 7 Proteomics Stocks For Investing in Proteins

We recently had the chance to present our take on nanotechnology investing to The Nanotechnology Industries Association, and it wasn’t the most compelling topic, at least when it comes to the success of nanomaterials. One attendee joked that the word “nano” is Greek for “we need funding.” It’s a reflection on how nanotechnology didn’t really […]

One long-term solution is to use biodegradable bioplastics made from natural renewable resources like algae. But that still leaves a legacy of water bottles, packaging, and Kardashian body parts that will be […]

A Pure-Play Protein Engineering Stock

The donkeys and the elephants are preparing for war in November when they should really be focused on more amazing things – like protein engineering. We recently wrote about how scientists are Designing Proteins to be Molecular Machines using algorithms that need to consider more amino acid combinations than atoms in the universe. The proteins […]

It’s up for debate which human invention should be considered the greatest of all time. Some would argue the wheel. Others might say MTV (the 1980s version at least), while cases could also be made for everything from the printing press to the internal combustion engine. We vote for beer—but probably not for the reasons […]
