Madison biotech facility expected to close; 179 could lose jobs

"Madison's biotechnology industry is headed for another big blow.
Third Wave Technologies is expected to close — or be reduced to a small presence — within two years after parent company Hologic completes its planned $3.7 billion purchase of San Diego-based Gen-Probe later this year, company officials and analysts say."

Ya gotta love them "analysts". I seem to remember China's commitment to a trillion or three dollars to biotech a few years back.

Time to get back to that plantation thread.
