Meiogenix's technologies improve the efficiency of molecular mechanisms of meiosis and accelerate the identification of novel variants of a given organisms.
SpiX technology modulates the process of homologous recombination in the genome by increasing its frequency in cold regions. By stimulating the process in regions of rare exchange, SpiX can unlock unexplored genetic diversity.
PhoeniX is a non-GM method that efficiently induces meiotic recombination in hybrid diploid (or polyploid) yeast cells without the need to go through the entire process of meiosis. PhoeniX relies on the capacity of a yeast cell to switch from meiosis to mitosis upon certain triggers (return-to-grow or RTG) and leads to highly diverse recombination profiles.
Meiogenix's technologies adress global food and industrial challenges.
Meiogenix is currently applying its technologies through different R&D programs in plants and industrial yeast, and is developing complementary breakthrough technologies to control meiosis and recombination.
