German giant signs wheat breeding deal with UNL

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln and German pharmaceutical company Bayer announced a partnership on Dec. 15 that will bring the company's first wheat breeding research facility to Lincoln. The deal grants Bayer access to UNL's germplasm — the genetic material used in wheat breeding. The company will support wheat research and educational programs at its new Lincoln facility and establish a $2 million endowed professorship. UNL researcher P. Stephen Baenziger will fill the professorship.
