    Thanks for your comment, Tatiana. This is not a direct answer to your comment, but to clarify the article and provide some context in case it helps, the asterisk (*) in the first paragraph refers to the founding of Biogen by Walter Gilbert, Sir Kenneth Murray and Phillip Sharp and the founding of Genetics Institute by Thomas Maniatis and Mark Ptashne.
