Startups join forces in developing herbicide-tolerant crops
Benson Hill empowers organizations of any size to leverage the most advanced tools in seed innovation, accelerating their R&D programs without major infrastructure costs or distraction from their core business. Through this partnership, Bioheuris will combine Benson Hill’s CRISPR 3.0 genome editing technology with its plant tissue culture and directed evolution platforms to introduce herbicide tolerance in crops.
“For decades, advanced genomics R&D was limited to just a handful of large multi-national companies working on just a few crops, “said Carlos Perez, CEO and co-founder of Bioheuris. “Benson Hill’s CRISPR 3.0 technology equips our scientists to develop the herbicide-tolerance targets farmers need using faster, less costly non-GMO methods. The ability to access such cutting-edge science through a truly fair and equitable partnership is the model our industry needs to bring real choice and profitability to farmers.”
Benson Hill’s CRISPR 3.0 nucleases are part of the suite of genome editing capabilities Benson Hill provides to partners to leverage the natural genetic diversity of plants and accelerate crop performance improvements. Because of their compact size and simple structure, Benson Hill’s novel nucleases are among the easiest to package and deliver to cells, enabling efficient genome editing.
“Bioheuris represents the next generation of more nimble seed innovators using advanced genomics to create more choice for farmers,” said Matt Crisp, CEO and co-founder of Benson Hill Biosystems. “As a company committed to empowering innovation, we are thrilled to equip the scientists of Bioheuris with the most advanced tools available to help execute their strategy.”
