Genome Editing Platform

for sustainable food production

InEdita’s nature-inspired genome-edited crops reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in food production. We create varieties resistant to pests and diseases, with enhanced efficiency of water and nutrient acquisition.

New technologies for fighting pests and diseases with less chemicals

(fine-tuning the expression of regulatory elements)

The InEdita Bio genome editing platform enables the development of crops that are more tolerant to pests and diseases,  improving yield and benefiting the environment by reducing the use of chemical pesticides.

Proprietary Genome-editing Platform

Genome editing is a revolutionary technology that enables scientists to make precise changes in the genome of almost all organisms.

Less chemicals, more health

Millions of tons of pesticides are sprayed to control diseases, with a negative impact on the environment and human health.

Better crop performance

We control the expression of regulatory elements, to eliminate the disease-causing agents.

Higher yield

Our platform enables the control  of the expression of genes involved in plant growth and development, allowing better performance exploring natural sources of nutrients.

Focus on global crops

We focus on global crops such as maize and soybean. Our technology improves yield and benefits the environment by reducing the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Non-transgenic

Small regulatory sequences down- or up-regulate target genes, making plants resistant to pest and diseases with increased resilience to climate changes.

Keeping natural plant gene expression intact

Our proprietary platform allows the selective use of highly expressed and constitutive genes to deliver regulatory elements to plant cells.
