Monsanto Closes Indian Bioinformatics Center


Seed maker Monsanto has decided to close its bioinformatics center at its research unit in the South Indian city of Bangalore, a company spokesman said.


 “We are stopping some of the research in areas where there is no immediate value,” said spokesman Bryan Hurley. “We scaled back initial discovery research on some of our projects as part of our overall decision to focus our commercial efforts on crops.”


Hurley said Monsanto of St. Louis would instead concentrate on developing corn, soybean, cotton, wheat, and canola seeds.
