The Co-operators Centre for Business and Social Entrepreneurship (CBaSE) has announced that it has accepted five outstanding businesses into the first cohort of its Hub Incubator Program. Plant Ag PhD Candidates Ann Meyer and Greg Downs' Prograde Bioinformatics was among the five businesses chosen.
Prograde Bioinformatics will provide the technical knowledge that is required to process the vast amount of data generated through Next Generation Sequencing and provide meaningful output that can be directly applied to solving research questions.
CBaSE offers transformational learning experiences by way of applied business projects that enable the collaboration of faculty and students with the local community.
The program will launch on May 1st. You can read more about the program here
Congratulations to these two Plant Ag entrepreneurs!
