Belgian Institute Licenses Keygene's Plant ID Technology

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Keygene has licensed its DNA marker technology to the Belgium Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research, or ILVO, the Dutch company said today.
 
Under the limited, non-exclusive agreement, ILVO will use Keygene’s AFLP technology to perform reactions to identify certain plant varieties.
 
The agreement for the technology, which is used in genomic and genetic analysis and transcript profiling, includes the use of the AFLP trademark and allows ILVO to identify and characterize essential and derived plant varieties.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
