First time on this board. Perhaps someone can refer me to a previous post for the answer or tell me where I can find it elsewhere:
What are the relative merits of yeast and algae in producing various products?
Solazyme (SZYM) uses algae to produce oils, including biofuels. Amyris (AMRS) uses yeast for the same goal. Codexis (CDXS) uses yeast to produce ethanol and pharmaceuticals. I'm sure there are many more companies that are in the same general area of activity but these are the only ones I know (a little) about. It's tough trying to make investment decisions without knowing anything about the bases of the businesses. I'd appreciate any help from you smart guys here.
