Solutions to Grow On

Unprecedented Market-Responsiveness

Not only do Superlines make gene editing and trait expression easier to perform, they lend themselves to various collaboration options, in response to rapid changes in environmental and market conditions. GeneNeer is cultivating multiple business models for leveraging its new capabilities, helping seed developers provide solutions faster and safer than ever before.

Tier-1 Seed Company Collaboration:

Creating gene-editing Superlines for row crops

As an enabling technology, GeneNeer’s Superlines offer the global seed industry a tool to facilitate fast, safe and precise gene-editing platform to produce enhanced row-crop varieties. This activity begins with research collaborations between GeneNeer and Tier-1 and Tier-2 companies. GeneNeer’s Superlines are used as a platform for fast, accurate introduction of new traits into row crops. They facilitate the generation of the enhanced crops, and shorten new crop line time-to-market. The seed-producing companies will then commercialize their enhanced seeds.

In-House Enhanced Crop Varieties:

Facilitating rapid crop enhancement
to address immediate and alternating
market needs

GeneNeer’s Superlines facilitate development of enhanced crop varieties, featuring specific genetic traits. As an enabling technology in sweet potatoes, and a facilitating technology in potatoes, Superlines are used by GeneNeer to develop product lines with proprietary traits in globally-important crops. GeneNeer’s initial focus on potatoes and sweet potatoes will be followed by additional row crops. GeneNeer will sell these lines to Tier 1 and 2 crop seed companies for commercialization in their relevant market segments.

Lucrative Traits:

Off-the-shelf Trait Prototypes

The need for lucrative traits, such as drought tolerance, can be impacted by geography, type of crop and environmental factors, however, the challenges facing row crops are similar globally. GeneNeer is developing the induced drought tolerance trait in a model plant, which may be acquired and introduced by seed developers into their own crop seed varieties.
