N.C. Answers Your Questions at BIO2011

Whether the issue is partnering, supply chain or the next big thing in ag biotech, you'll find your answer at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center today. And North Carolina speakers have those answers.

Today's topic titles themselves are filled with questions:

  • "To Partner or Not to Partner, that is the Question"
    Scott Weiner from Pappas Ventures
    8:30 a.m., Room 144 B/C
  • "The Biomanufacturing Capacity Conundrum: Managing Supply and Demand Over Space and Time"
    Roger Lias from Eden Biodesign
    10 a.m., Room 145A
  • "Looking Beyond Row Crops: What's Next for Agricultural Biotechnology?
    Moderated by the Biotech Center's Gwyn Riddick
    2 p.m. Room 159 A/B

The ag biotech panel includes panelists from Monsanto, Novozymes, Arborgen and Advanced Animal Diagnostics. That list of panelists may indicate that the future of ag biotech is not about crops at all. Look for a wrap-up here if you can't make the session - right now more than 65 people have signed up!

Finally, don't miss the North Carolina pavilion, 2,500 square feet packed full with 91 sponsors. Nowhere can you find a greater concentration of biotech and support companies who are also expert on the Old North State.
