Keygene:  From Leads to Seeds

The Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that 70% more food production over the next four decades is needed to nourish a human population projected to exceed 9 billion by the year 2050. Such a generational challenge cannot be met by traditional fragmented approaches to research and development. Rather, an interdisciplinary and a more integrated, "Leads to Seeds" approach to agricultural is warranted to reach minimum metrics of global food security. KeyGene's proprietary technology platforms in molecular breeding, its expertise in genomics, transcriptomics and digital phenotyping of diverse crops has positioned the company as a leader in the field. Through its platforms and strategic collaborations with its industry partners, KeyGene seeks to enable expedited crop innovation and crop improvement. Several examples of KeyGene's technologies will be showcased in support of the "Leads to Seeds" theme.
