DURHAM – More than 100 people gathered at Oerth Bio, an agricultural biotechnology company in downtown Durham, to hear about a new collaboration between Oerth and Bayer, a global enterprise focused on health care and nutrition, and to celebrate Oerth's facilities expansion. The companies will develop the next generation of more sustainable crop protection products. The unique protein degradation technology used by Oerth Bio, PROTAC, has the potential to generate products that support Bayer's sustainability objective to reduce the environmental impact of agriculture via lower application rates and favorable safety profiles, Bayer said in a news release announcing the collaboration.
