Rosetta Green Touts New miRNA Discovery Platform


Agbio firm Rosetta Green said this week that it has developed an improved platform for microRNA discovery.

According to the company, the new platform includes more than 4,500 plant miRNAs and is expected to accelerate the company's efforts to identify new miRNAs and correlate them with key traits in crop plants.

The platform, which also includes an automated target-prediction tool, has already been tested in 10 crops: corn, soybean, wheat, cotton, canola, tomato, potato, castor bean, sugarcane, and banana.
