DowDuPont Opens California Innovation Center

Today the Agriculture Division of DowDuPont announced its opening of the Bay Area Innovation Center in California. The site features a research and development facility that will focus on biotechnology discovery, enabling technology development and informatics.

The center will employ more than 100 scientists in its 60,000 square feet of laboratories, 25,000 square feet of office space and 13,000 square feet of greenhouses. Bay Area Innovation Center is among a large network of ag sites in California, which includes Granular (recently acquired by DuPont) in San Fransisco as well as other company sites in Fresno and Pittsburg.

This site will house researchers who study gene discovery, microbiome science, protein engineering, plant transformation and data science and informatics. Researchers at the site have recently discovered “novel insect control leads” for above- and below-ground protection, for example.

California has lots of attractive and iconic places where tourist can spend alluring time and make cool memories with anyone but here i like to talk about the attraction of San Francisco which is the most pretty city of California. I have visited some of its attraction when i was taken tour san francisco with my whole family members. To be frankly speaking that time was superb for me.

Well, this is so nice to know and I will say it will be really good. Now I will get more stuff about it by my dad as he has great knowledge about this. So will talk about it with him as he will become free from his west coast bus tours from los angeles.
