The biopharma sector's blue chip companies unfortunately got into the Halloween spirit, with the BioWorld Biopharmaceutical index posting a 7 percent swoon in value in October. That performance could be enough to scare investors into remaining on the sidelines for the rest of the year. They may be thinking that the great run biopharmaceutical companies have had this year may have finally run out of steam. In addition, the general markets offer attractive alternatives right now.
Leveraging the Landscape of Sensitivity Modifiers to Suppress ResistanceCRISPR/Cas9-based loss-of-function screening has recently been shown to be a powerful approach in functional genomics owing to its ability to generate complete genetic loss-of-function mutations with minimal off-target effects relative to RNAi (Barrangou and Doudna, 2016xApplications of CRISPR technologies in research and beyond.

The sun has been shining on the biopharmaceutical sector of late as investors have returned to the sector big time. As a result, the BioWorld Biopharmaceutical index grew a healthy 6.6 percent in the second quarter, well ahead of the general markets, thanks to a late June spurt in valuations, causing the index to grow 5.8 percent last month.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
