Syngenta and NRGene collaboration expected to have ‘disruptive impact’ on the world food supply

Syngenta, a global agrochemical and seed company that manufactures several chemical products used by many potato producers around the world, and NRGene, a genomic big data company based in Israel, announced earlier this week that they are advancing their cooperation in breeding and trait discovery in key crops, including potatoes. In a press release it is said that Syngenta has licensed NRGene’s GenoMAGICTM, a cloud-based big data analytics platform, to evaluate, predict, compare and select the best genetic makeup for crop molecular breeding and genomic selection. The agreement is on a non-exclusive, multi-year basis. The press release states that the collaboration will have a “disruptive impact on the world food supply.” Read the full release
