His first day on the air, new CNN morning show Anchor Chris Cuomo fills in for Piers Morgan to cover the blizzard wreaking havoc all over the Northeast.
Search teams are focusing on the San Bernardino Mountains in California in their hunt for Christopher Dorner, a former LAPD officer accused of killing three and threatening to attack again.
CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo makes his first appearance on CNN during the Northeast blizzard that is impacting millions of people.
Jay Keasling, a pioneer in the burgeoning field of synthetic biology, is
engineering microbes – single cell organisms like yeast and e coli – to
produce biofuels, medicines, even cosmetic compounds from simple ingredients
like sugar cane and grass.
In addition to teaching bioengineering at UC Berkeley, Jay is also CEO of
the U.S. Dept of Energy’s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) in Emeryville,
Keasling’s biggest breakthrough to date came in 2003 when he and his
students reprogrammed yeast to produce a synthetic version of an expensive
anti-malarial drug known as artemisinin. Armed with a $42 million grant
from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, they’ve since perfected this
inexpensive and effective replacement drug, providing a royalty-free license
for mass production to pharmaceutical giant Sanofi-Aventi. Sanofi will bring
it to market in 2013, producing 100 million treatments annually. Malaria
currently kills roughly 1 million people a year, many of them children. FULL POST
