Wisconsin Crop Innovation Center is a public crop biotechnology service and research center. WCIC enables exploration of plant gene function in the context of extensive crop genome resources and global challenges such as population growth, world hunger, climate instability, and sustainability concerns.
WCIC dramatically increases U.S. translational and functional genomic research potential with the capacity to handle thousands of constructs per year across primary crop and model plant species. Initial fee-for-service offerings will be expanded over time as we work toward technologies to transform and edit cultivars of interest to the research community efficiently and cost-effectively. We are interested in initial partnerships that have the potential to immediately utilize the capacity of WCIC.
