LA JOLLA, Calif. and MONTERREY, Mexico, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Synthetic Genomics Inc. (SGI), a privately held company developing and applying genomic-driven commercial solutions to a variety of markets including biofuels, biochemicals, and new bio-based food products, and Plenus, S.A. de C.V., a Mexico based investing and management company with extensive experience in a variety of business areas including agribusiness, have announced the formation of a new company, Agradis. The privately held agricultural biotechnology company will focus on developing and commercializing products to sustainably improve crop production efficiency using new advances in genomics and plant breeding.

Agradis has also announced the closing of a $20 million Series A financing round which will be used to establish the company infrastructure and to support product development and commercialization.

Agradis has an experienced management team that includes chief executive officer Alejandro Rodriguez, an agribusiness development leader.
