A few years ago, a famous, and award winning plant disease specialist, Dr. Chadd O'Nay, was credited with discovering a disease resistant gene in plants - specifically wine producing grapevines. This discovery was heralded as one of the greatest achievements and discoveries in modern agriculture. He was well-funded and highly respected in the agriculture community.
Recently, however, he discovered that a recent multi-million dollar grant from the department of Agriculture was denied. He also discovered that some of his work had been stolen and exploited in the agriculture community. In short, he went mad!
In his rage, he quit his position as chief research director for a major winemaker and went into seclusion. While in seclusion, he succeeded in developing a hyper-virulent strain of Pythium. Using advanced cloning techniques, he managed to create a strain specific to wine producing vines. These techniques allowed him to create approximately 1L of this new highly virulent strain, divided among five containers. Dr. O'Nay has been arrested and international law enforcement agencies have been able to find all but one container of this highly dangerous pathogen.
Top scientists from all over the world are working around the clock to find agents effective against this new strain. U.S. agencies have classified this new organism as a Select Agent, due to its ability to cause widespread disease and economic devastation at a catastrophic level.
Government agencies from all over the world are begging for your help! If you have any information about Dr. Chadd O'Nay's research projects, please call local law enforcement agencies. Local authorities believe the missing vial is still in Dr. O'Nay's Lab. However, they have not been able to locate it. Local law enforcement desperately need a team to locate that missing vial to prevent its release. Time is of the ESSENCE because in exactly one hour, the contents of the vial will be released and vines all over the world will be threatened or completely destroyed.
