TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW
Driving Down Costs and Expanding Opportunities

Our technology platforms are helping make biofuels, bio-based chemicals and biopower more economical and scalable. It starts with improving the crops themselves; a process as old as farming, but now coupled with the latest genomics-based breakthroughs.

Genomics and Model Systems

Plants as model systems

Our research starts by sequencing plant DNA, discovering genes and their function, and determining their potential use. >>

 

Compositional Analysis

Compositional Analytics

Our biochemistry experts study crop composition and metabolism to improve fuel yields and facilitate refining. >>

Marker-Assisted Plant Breeding

Marker-Assisted Plant Breeding

Molecular markers speed product development and allow us to work with multiple traits in a simple, efficient way. >>

Biotechnology

Crop Biotechnology

Biotech tools allow us to precisely add traits in ways not feasible through other plant breeding methods. >>

High-Speed Precision

To meet the rising demand for seeds and traits, we’re using specialized, high-throughput systems to accelerate our entire product development process. >>
