Thank you, and good afternoon. Thank you for joining Verenium’s second quarter 2012 conference call. I’m Jeff Black, Chief Financial Officer, and with me today are Jamie Levine, our Chief Executive Officer, and Janet Roemer, our Chief Operating Officer.
We plan to do something little different today, so before we get started I’d like to point out that later on in the call Jamie will be going through some slides which can viewed automatically via the webcast downloaded from the investor page of our website or download it as an attachment to the Form 8-K, that we filed today.
