San Francisco has managed to win the hearts and pocketbooks of some of northern California's new breed of biotech companies. Experts say that the new Mission Bay project--and surrounding blocks of commercial space--is the city's best advantage in the battle to woo biotech companies in the area, most of which are now concentrated in the Peninsula or in East Bay. Epiphany Biosciences counts itself among the converted, along with DiObex and others. It's still only a fledgling cluster, but city officials are hoping to see it flourish.
