plant genomics

CyVerse, the developers believe, better expresses the platform's capacity to provide data management and computation to researchers across multiple scientific disciplines.

Researchers plan to identify the plant's genetic diversity and evolutionary history in order to increase production and nutritional value.

The German startup is building a business around providing bioinformatics analysis services to large agricultural biotechnology companies.

The company, a spinoff from the University of Tübingen and a Max Planck Institute, offers bioinformatics services for high-throughput sequencing data to the plant breeding industry.

The effort brings together gene banks, researchers, plant breeders, and big data experts, all of whom will use genomics to unlock crop diversity.

 

The technology is for gene targeting using endocunleases and homologous recombination, and is the second licensing deal between the parties since April.

The project aims to sequence nine different taxa of cultivated potato and one closely-related wild species to facilitate the production of improved varieties of the crop.
