February 18, 2004 | The Mirus Genomic Index, prepared exclusively for Bio·IT World, is calculated as the sum of the market capitalizations of all included companies and is consequently a value-weighted index. It serves as an indicator of the financial health of the industry. The index was developed at RCW Mirus (www.merger.com), an investment banking firm, by David Hoffer and colleagues at the firm's Boston headquarters.
