NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Metabolon said today that it has expanded a multi-year agreement with Syngenta giving the agricultural products firm access to its biochemical profiling technology for use in agricultural products.
The agreement follows initial studies performed by Research Triangle Park, NC-based Metabolon for Syngenta to test the application of its technology. Syngenta will use the technology for making decisions on crop traits sooner in the development cycle.
“Metabolon’s technology provides us critical insights to the performance of our products, which will aid development of new offerings for our grower customers,” Roger Kemble, head of crop genetics research for Syngenta, said in a statement.
Financial terms of the alliance were not disclosed.
