ŸNSECT launches ŸnFabre, world’s 1st industrial program for beetle genetics

January 30, 2022 |

In France, alternative protein is getting a boost with Ÿnsect, a leader in producing insect-based ingredients, launched ŸNFABRE, the first industrial genomic selection program applied to mass insect farming for alternative food protein.

More specifically, the programme brings together a number of fields of expertise and powerful innovations in developing phenotyping tools (biological trait characterization) and genotyping tools (identification of genomic variation), mathematical models and industrial processes. The ŸNFABRE project looks set to enable the creation of pioneering units that will both select and multiply high-performing, resilient insect breeds and help further our understanding of insect biology.
