Summary Governing reports on "cultivating biotechnology" as a major economic development objective in Arkansas. The story looks at finances behind the biotech research and development efforts throughout the country. The article details initiatiatives coming from the business and the academic world, but also examines "the public sector's role in helping fledgling enterprises to thrive." The report describes methods of pumping capital into money-starved biotech companies, and some competitive advantages of small cities that are not amongst the largest biotech incubators.
