“Some great match-ups this week. Synth bio shootouts in Solazyme vs Cobalt, Mascoma vs Joule, and Amyris vs Novozymes, plus a big corn battle in Gevo vs POET, commented Digest editor Jim Lane. “All of these companies are Hot 50 heavyweights, and all have a strong fan base among the subscribers. Not, the readers will have to make tough choices, and really look deep at the data.”
