Translating your breeding questions into new crop varieties

Developing and transferring knowledge

To produce new and improved varieties, there is a strong need for new genetic methods conferring novel trait/crop characteristics. KeyGene provides innovative technologies and traits to accelerate your breeding programs. Important to know: KeyGene tailors its research to individual customer’s needs. Transfer of knowledge, software & databases to the customer is one of our keys to successful breeding.

Enabling technologies & traits platforms

KeyGene developed a large number of enabling technologies that comprise our three proprietary technology platforms: Lead Discovery & ValidationMolecular Mutagenesis and Accelerated Molecular Breeding. 

Also, we developed four trait platforms: Biotic Stress Resistances, Abiotic Stress ResistancesHerbicide Tolerances and Reproduction Traits.

Our core expertise

keygene

Our core expertise is our knowledge of genes and DNA, and how this translates into the properties of plants.  We know how to do breeding of genes, directly at the level of DNA. With this expertise we help you with your complex breeding questions.
KeyGene tailors its research to individual customer’s needs. Furthermore the transfer of knowledge, software & databases to the customer is one of our keys to successful breeding. Our breeding tools can be integrated in running breeding programs without any additional regulatory requirements.
