Yield10 is in the business of “building better plants” to achieve step-change increases in the yield of major food and feed crops. Yield10 is leveraging its technology platforms and unique knowledge base to design precise alterations to gene activity and the flow of carbon in plants to produce higher yields with lower inputs of land, water or fertilizer. The company's two discovery platforms have provided them with a strong pipeline of traits. The company is focused on translating initial encouraging yield improvement results in Camelina to canola, soybean, rice and corn.
The company has been using CRISPR-Cas9 to develop lines of Camelina sativa with enhanced omega-3 oil.
