Agricultural Technologies and Bioproducts

Leading discoveries in the engineering and commercialization of bioactive plant products.

This cluster brings together experts with diverse skills in biology, bioinformatics, chemistry and engineering to investigate bioproducts in plants grown for food, medicine, cosmetics and industrial raw materials. The initial focus will be on cannabis (Cannabis sativa) to develop technologies to safely mass produce cannabinoids, investigate flower initiation and development, and develop new cannabis genotypes and bioproducts.
