I wonder why the Nobel price winner in chemistry of 1993, Kary B. Mullis,
is not implemented in the fraud, as he worked at Cetus in the same period,
and published with them on the subject matter (Science 1988 Jan
29;239(4839):487-91 -Primer-directed enzymatic amplification of DNA with a
thermostable DNA polymerase.) Anybody with worthwhile opinions?
