Both Codexis and Ziopharm had a great month. Codexis closed a week out at a valuation of over $1 billion for the first time in its history. Ziopharm rose thanks to a positive update to a Phase I clinical trial. On the opposite end, Amyris presented some pretty rough Q3 data. The stock dropped around 30% that day and has yet to recover.
