Plant Biotechnology: A Proposal for Economic Leadership
Plant Biotechnology: A Proposal for Economic Leadership — This paper was the basis for a two-year Jefferson Institute effort to establish and secure the Governor's blessing for a Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia Tech. The economic potential created by advances in plant biotechnology will produce a dramatic growth engine for regions that lead in academics and research tied to entrepreneurial ventures. Although not focused on Virginia, it is clear that the ideas expressed in this White Paper can become the catalyst to develop a worldwide center for plant biotechnology in our state.
