NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bioseed Research India will use KeyGene's Molecular Breeding technology in its development efforts for crops in India and Southeast Asia, KeyGene said today.

Bioseed Research India has generated new traits in field crops such as corn, cotton, millet, and others, and it wants to use this collaboration to identify and deploy naturally occurring genes for novel traits to improve hybrid seeds. These new crop advancements could increase yield, enhance sustainability of production in tropical regions, and improve quality traits.
