About us

We are an innovative company that supports research in the area of plant biotechnology for Research Centers (public and private) in Brazil and other countries. We follow existing models in the United States, where instead of several laboratories doing plant transformation, only one Plant Transformation Facility serves everyone. In this way, we keep our structure running all year round, with  highly specialized personnel. 

Our mission

Carry out genetic transformation of plants with world-class standards and competitive costs, promoting the advancement of the scientific community and bringing innovations in biotechnology to sugarcane cultivation at the same level as those used in corn, soybean and cotton crops.
