The company focuses its activity on the sector of plant biotechnology, specifically in the genetic improvement of plant species through traditional breeding, in vitro cell and tissue culture, and the use of advanced genomic tools.
Due to its high yield and homogeneity, development of hybrid varieties with consistent traits is one of the main objectives of plant genetic improvement.
Ploidy & Genomics®
Focuses its efforts on the development of plant varieties with specific biochemical profiles and enhanced levels of secondary metabolites.
“Since the beginning of the agriculture, humans have developed a process of domestication of the different plant species by selecting and reproducing the specimens that best adapted to their needs, giving shape to what we know today as plant genetic improvement.”
