Partner's Genome Editing vision
At Hazera, we believe that we must explore all opportunities to address the challenges for future agriculture, which include feeding the growing world population, reducing environmental impact, decreasing use of agrochemicals, preserving biodiversity, and fostering resilience in response to climate change. Genome editing can enhance genetic variation, which is the raw material for crop improvement, and is complementary to the breeding methods, technologies, and techniques that we are currently using.
Partner's activity within the consortium
Hazera is contributing sequence data of CRISPR genome-edited protoplasts for the development of the computational GOGENOME machine, based on variation of essential traits and targets.
