I missed the demise of Rosetta out here in Seattle. Merck bought this company back in 2001 for 630 million dollars.

Things were going well in 20004.

Then they discontinued the project last October.

It's a classic Cargo Cult scenario. We have a technology that will change the way drugs are discovered. Where are the drugs? Who is talking about why Rosetta failed to do what it promised? Only the Cargo Cult Scientist is wondering why computer programmers couldn't turn human speculations (medical research) into the fountain of youth. Too much BS was piled too high. So long Rosetta. I know you'll get an office or two in New Jersey but you won't produce any drugs. Silly.
