We take care of our food, health and environment by taking care of plants.
Our proprietary INTtraitTM technology identifies building blocks in the native DNA to design innovative products made with plants.
To unlock the genetic diversity of the plants, we first look at their DNA as a master LEGOⓇ piece using computational biology and recombine part of it. INTtrait™ creates new genes by recombining existing genetic elements of ≥20 nucleotides or building blocks from the native genome.
- Native DNA building blocks are identified in-silico and are assembled to create a new trait locus
- The new trait locus is inserted into the genome using direct delivery systems
- Plants expressing the new trait locus are selected based on trait performance
RNA molecules and proteins can be generated using INTtraitTM technology. The efficiency of the approach depends primarily on the natural genetic diversity of the plant and the method used to deliver DNA.
