Keygene Extends Research with KWS

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Keygene has come to a new research agreement with a long-term business partner, the plant breeding company KWS.
Keygene said it expects the agreement will continue research begun last year that resulted in new high-throughput genotyping products, including the SNPWave 90-plex SNP detection assay and the CRoPS high throughput SNP identification after genome complexity reduction.
The agreement gives KWS access to any innovations or knowledge generated by the program, which it will use for both research and in its breeding business.
