NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Wistar Institute broke ground today on a new $100 million research facility that will sit alongside its original lab, now nearly 120 years old, in Philadelphia's University City.

Jackson Laboratory cited a lack of available state funding for the project, ending a drawn out and controversial plan by the laboratory to expand into Florida.

The company will soon start building a new R&D facility near its current NC campus that will study crop plant genomes and develop beneficial traits.

The company also opened a Life Science development laboratory, giving it 8,000 square feet of space and making the combined lab and center of excellence the largest Agilent research facility in the world.

The division, located in Shanghai, will develop instruments and other products that target the mid-level instrument market, an increasingly competitive space in China.

Jackson Laboratory has reached an agreement to start a personalized medicine center with USF and other partners, but Sarasota County voters still need to approve the funding.

Qiagen will now sell its products directly to customers in the country rather than using distribution partners.

Jackson Lab insisted in a statement that it intends to proceed with the project, explaining that despite the withdrawal it "will work with newly elected Florida Gov. Rick Scott to align the project with his goals for growing the state's economy."

DKFZ says it wants to implement new programs in cancer stem cell research, cancer genome sequencing, neuro-oncology, and cancer epidemiology.
