    On CRGN

    There was a discussion a few days ago on whether
    Curagen will be bought by Abbott. I did a little research
    on Curagen, this may be the next hot biotech
    company. I called a couple of friends in New Heaven area
    and found out a few things about Curagen. It is a
    hydrid of automation, software, mechnical engineering
    and biotechnology. Its high throughput screening
    technology is one of the best or more accuratly the most
    unique in the industry. It has 50% of its business in
    genetic seed area (like Delkalb and Abgribio), and
    another 50% in genomics and informatics. All these are
    hot areas. Curagen has been around for only couple of
    years but has already gained trust from a number of
    firms--currently has collaborations with the world's largest
    genetic seed firm--Pioneer Hi-Bred. It will be
    interesting to see if Curagen can land a couple of more deals
    in this quarter, if it can do that, we will see a
    major movement on the share prices. Note that Biogen
    paid $11.50 for the shares. I guess right now would be
    a safe entry. I do not have any idea if Abbott is
    in talk with Curagen or not. I will try to call my
    contacts to find out in the next few days. But I kina like
