From the Paper:

"Genentech, Inc. (an abbreviated version of the company's full name: Genetic Engineering Technology, Inc.) has arguably become, in the past three decades since it first was formed, the relatively young biotechnology industry's foremost worldwide corporate entity. In fact, Genentech in its earliest corporate phase throughout the mid-to-late 1970's is the company that actually pioneered the (then brand new) field of biotechnology, beginning officially in 1976. Unofficially, though, Boyer and various research associates were doing what would now be called biotechnology research several years before that ("Genentech")."
