Rosetta Green Inks Sugar Beet miRNA Deal with KWS


Rosetta Green announced last week that it has struck a research collaboration with German plant breeding firm KWS to discover microRNAs that can improve sugar beet.

Rosetta Green will discover and characterize a “limited” number of miRNAs, which will be tested by KWS in plants. KWS will receive a license to use miRNAs selected for their ability to enhance sugar beet.

Additional terms were not disclosed.

The deal marks the latest in a series of collaborations Rosetta Green has formed recently, including ones with DuPont (GSN 12/22/2011) and Bayer CropScience (GSN 4/12/2012).
