S&W Seed Company and Calyxt, Inc. Announce Alfalfa Seed Collaboration
Jun 9 15
S&W Seed Company and Calyxt, Inc. announced that they have entered into a collaboration agreement to research, develop, produce and commercialize alfalfa seed products involving next generation gene editing technology on S&W's alfalfa seed genetics. Calyxt's technology allows for the custom gene-editing of plant species to create novel traits and increase value. In particular, Calyxt will be applying its patented nuclease technology to develop a series of alfalfa seed products based on editing of native genes to improve the agronomic and quality value of alfalfa for the food and agriculture industries. The approach is based on the same principle as classical cross-breeding of different plants, however the gene editing technology developed by Calyxt dramatically accelerates the development timeline. The targeted approach of gene editing is more predictable and reliable than traditional breeding and can also be much more cost effective. The companies will look to commercialize products through S&W and Calyxt's distribution channels with pre-defined financial terms.
