April 24 is March for Babies Day.
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year.
The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find
answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2 billion to benefit all babies.
LifeScience Moment: Frostban was sprayed on an acre of strawberry plants in Brentwood, CA, marking the first release of genetically altered bacteria in the U.S.
On April 24, 1987, Advanced Genetic Sciences, a pioneering agricultural biotechnology company headquartered in Oakland, California, sprayed Frostban on
an acre of strawberry plants in Brentwood, CA, marking the first release of genetically altered bacteria in the U.S.
Advanced Genetic Sciences developed Frostban as a bacterial-based treatment capable of reducing frost damage to fruit and nut crops.

"There is going to be a change in the 21st century in how people do things and how they think. Biotechnology is going to change the world."
