CBC Becomes University Center

Effective May 1, 2017 the CBC has become a center reporting to Iowa State’s Vice President for Research. As a center, CBC continues its mission of deploying innovative, transformative genome engineering technologies that identify, validate, and integrate strategically important traits and underlying genes into key crop plants in a manner that meets public and regulatory expectations. Center status provides a secure platform with flexibility for future growth to serve the university and Iowans.
