NetaGenomix vision

NetaGenomiX aims to develop, grow and supply superior annual and perennial, high-yielding, sustainable crop varieties, better adapted to climate change, with improved nutritional and health properties.

The Solution

Revolutionizing Crop Development with Precision and Scale

Groundbreaking Gene-editing Platform

With NetaGenomiX groundbreaking gene-editing platform, we are redefining plant breeding possibilities in plant breeding. 

Leveraging Advanced Bioinformatics

Leveraging advanced bioinformatics, sophisticated CRISPR libraries, and precise genome editing techniques, NetaGenomiX provide genome editing at the genome-wide scale. Moreover, the platform allows for the simultaneous targeting of multiple members within gene families. 

Unlocking the Full Potential

Our approach is not just about making incremental changes: it's about unlocking the full potential of plant genomes. 

Screening Thousands of Plants

This enables to generate thousands of plants, each modified in multiple genes, overcoming the challenges of genetic redundancy, and bringing forth a new era of climate-smart crop varieties.
