increased efficiency of parent selection, breeding scheme, and selection process
GENOMIC PLANT BREEDING
Genomic plant breeding is one of the shortest and most effective routes to improving global health through improved nutrition.
Jeroen Hofenk, Chief Science Officer
Unravelling the genetic system of a crop with a good drought tolerance or insect resistance is no simple task. It requires fundamental knowledge of plant genetics but also new strategies and techniques to utilise such knowledge in the breeding of plants.
Our methods and technologies within the Genomic Breeding platform increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the parent selection, breeding scheme and selection process. It makes use of genetic & genomic data and advanced (big) data science techniques. This delivers better breeding lines and higher breeding efficiency, resulting in higher gains, reduced costs and shortened time to market -- thus providing a real competitive edge to our clients.
