National Agricultural Genotyping Center introduces first open house.
The National Agricultural Genotyping Center promoted its first open house on Sunday.

The event was attended by the board of directors, who presented their priorities and targets for the next year, along with representatives from government and industry leaders, who engaged the open-house and discussed the possibilities the center will offer.

The center will be responsible for translating scientific discoveries into solutions for production agriculture, food safety, functional foods, bio-energy and national security.

"NAGC will help growers increase production and lower costs," NCGA Director of Research Richard Vierling said. "With so many stakeholders on hand and actively expressing interest, it was apparent to all present that the exciting potential for innovation is enormous and will lead to concrete results that can strengthen the bottom line for U.S. farmers." 

The NAGC partnership brings together Los Alamos National Laboratory and the National Corn Growers Association, an organization representing more than 43,000 farmers.
