DuPont To Acquire Microbe Developer
DuPont has agreed to acquire Taxon Biosciences, a Tiburon, Calif.-based developer of microbial products, for an undisclosed sum. Frank DeGennaro, director of DuPont Biologicals, says Taxon will enhance DuPont’s in-house microbial discovery program as the company develops crop biologicals that improve plant health, quality, and yield. DuPont competitors including Monsanto, Bayer, and FMC have all struck microbial product deals in recent years.
