NEW YORK, Oct. 26 (GenomeWeb News) - Jerini Peptide Technologies, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Berlin-based pharmaceutical company Jerini, will establish its first US operations at the Farifax County BioAccelerator business incubator in Virginia, the company said yesterday.

JPT said it gained the right to enter the BioAccelerator after edging out eight German biotechnology companies in a 2003 Farifax County Economic Development Authority business plan competition.
