N.C. Scientists Plant Plants to be Manufacturing Plants

emna, a plant commonly known as duckweed and frequently found in farm ponds.
The firm's lead product is Locteron, a controlled-release interferon to treat people with chronic hepatitis C, a viral liver disease.
Biolex, founded with early funding help from the Biotech Center, has since raised about $200 million and is also working with animal health company Merial to use Biolex's patented lemna system to make animal vaccines.
  • SoyMeds, in Davidson, N.C., is working on soybean seed-derived vaccines that will be inexpensive and easy to store and ship without the need for refrigeration. That could be a major benefit – especially for people in the developing world.
  • The Intrexon AgBio Division in RTP is using pizza topping – button mushrooms – to make proteins that its scientists believe could produce three million vaccine doses in as little as three months.
    Like other companies that "make the cut" and get Biotech Center funding support, that stamp of approval has led to more than $9 million in federal funding and about $70 million from investors.
  • Jabb of the Carolinas is also putting fungi to work. The Pine Level, N.C., firm develops fungal pesticides and provides biopesticide products that are safe, effective and economical alternatives to conventional pesticides.
    Jabb's balEnce is made from the naturally occurring fungus Beauveria bassiana. The company's proprietary technologies produce commercial quantities of the fungus economically and also let Jabb provide custom development and manufacturing of fungal products for other companies.

  • More new plant-based technologies will start popping up in 2012 at North Carolina's Alexandria Ag-Tech Center,* a unique new $13.5 million, 50,000-square-foot agricultural research incubator facility with 18,000 square feet of world-class research greenhouse space near RTP.
