Why genome editing
With the discovery of CRISPR, the possibility of precise genome editing has allowed the world to rethink its approach to serious challenges in agriculture, food and pharma. In agriculture, we now have the ability to further improve crops that have already undergone extensive breeding, with great speed and preserving the improvements realized so far. HRB applies CRISPR-based genome editing towards genetic crop optimization for improved yields, disease resistance and nutritional value. Ultimately we aim to contribute to solving global challenges associated with increased demand for food and natural ingredients produced in a way that ensures a sustainable future.
Why Hudson River Biotechnology
We employ state-of-the-art science and the latest genetic technologies to optimize plants. HRB can be your co-development partner for all aspects of genome editing projects, as our TiGER platform offers the full spectrum of technologies needed. For partners who already have substantial in-house capabilities, HRB can supplement by providing proprietary solutions to specific parts of the workflow (for example, providing genome-wide data on gene regulatory elements in the genome, enhancing transfection capabilities, developing crop-specific applications). For other partners, we can provide a complete end-to-end solution, from a concept to a modified crop ready for field or greenhouse testing. This includes all technical aspects such as target identification, CRISPR guide design and validation, transfection (entry) and plant regeneration, as well as commercial aspects such as navigating the regulatory environment and intellectual property landscape.
