Interview with Antonio Molina in TIERRAS magazine

Antonio Molina, as well as director of the Center for Plant Biotechnology and Genomics (CBGP), was the founder of Plant Response Biotech SL, a spin-off company of the UPM classified by Thrive 2019 as one of the 50 companies to follow within the technology sector world agriculture. The company was also rated last year as the European company with the highest investment in a financial operation in the area of agricultural biotechnology, as a result of the joint venture with the American company Koch Bio (of the Koch Agricultural Science Group), to create Plant Response Inc.

The Nitrogen Fixation in Cereals Project led by CBGP enters its Phase III

The Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) has received a grant of 6.2 million dollars from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for the development of biological nitrogen fixation ( BNF) in cereals. This project, led by Luis Rubio, a scientist at the Center for Plant Biotechnology and Genomics (CBGP) of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and the National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA), seeks to obtain cereal crops with minimum requirements of nitrogen fertilizers.
