Algentech develops innovative technologies for the agro-biotech sector, biofuel production, the pharmaceutical industry and plant research applications. The company is a member of the leading French biocluster Génopole. Our research and development laboratories are located at INRA (Versailles, France), a world renowned center for applied agricultural research.
Our technologies enable precise targeting of genes in the plant nuclear and organellar (mitochondria and chloroplast) genomes:
- The nuclear gene targeting technology allows the rapid identification of genes associated with important agronomic traits (yield, resistance to pathogens, drought resistance…), the precise mutation/insertion of target genes. Current projects in development include improvement of the nutritional quality of cereals (high amylose content, higher rate of essential amino-acids).
- The mitochondria transformation tool is a breakthrough technology used for induction of cytoplasmic-male sterility for production of high yield hybrid varieties.
- Chloroplast transformation is mainly applied to the production of high value compounds in plants such as enzymes used in biofuel production, proteins and secondary metabolites for the pharmaceutical industry.
