Astro Genetech are a new biotech company, working out of Alexandria. They specialise in research into adaptation for hostile environments, among other things.
A little research will reveal that AG are not so new after all - the parent company, AG Holdings ALC, has been around since the early 'teens, and this is in fact the second company owned by them with a similar name. The first (Astro Genetech Biotechnology ALC), went bankrupt quite suddenly in the late '20s for undocumented reasons.
