Haller, University of California, Berkeley; Jeffrey A. Hubbell, Ècole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, in Switzerland; Eric W. Kaler, State University of New York, Stony Brook; Jay D. Keasling, UC Berkeley and Joint BioEnergy Institute; Thomas F. Kuech, University of Wisconsin, Madison; David J. Mooney, Harvard University; David L. Morse, Corning; and Roderic I. Pettigrew, NIH.
