Rosetta Green, Dupont sign feedstock research agreement

December 20, 2011 |

In Israel and Iowa, Rosetta Green and Dupont have entered into a strategic research agreement to identify drought tolerance genes in corn and soybeans.  Under the agreement, Rosetta Green will use proprietary technology and bioinformatics capabilities to identify microRNAs, which are small RNA molecules in corn, soybeans and other plants.

They represent an additional mode of action to develop important trait solutions in corn and other crops.  DuPont, through its Pioneer Hi-Bred business, will test candidate genes in target crops. Pioneer will have an exclusive commercial license for genes identified through this collaboration.
