Joint Genomic Center is a new initiative for the efficient establishment of public/private partnership. In December 2006 the Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” and the Agricultural Academy agreed to create jointly a Genomic Center on the principles of the Limited liability Company. It is the first initiative of this kind that joins the scientific efforts of such institutions with the aim to meet mostly the needs of the private sector.
