Evogene develops novel products for life science markets through the use of a unique computational predictive biology platform. Currently, the Company focuses on three key target markets: Seeds – addressing essential seed traits such as: yield, environmental stresses and resistance to insects and diseases; Ag-Chemicals – developing novel herbicides and insecticides; and Ag-Biologicals – developing a broad range of bio-stimulants & bio-pesticides
To reach its goals, Evogene established a unique predictive computational biology platform which relies on deep multi-disciplinary know how in biology and chemistry, combined with cutting edge computational technologies that allows the creation, integration and analysis of dedicated Big-Data for the purpose of systematic discoveries in our chosen areas of focus.
