The principle of gene editing is very simple: in the same way that a word processor’s spell check identifies and corrects errors in a word or grammar errors in a sentence, gene editing can be used to precisely edit the genetic code within a plant DNA.

Scientists at Calyxt utilize its customized gene editing technology, TALEN®, to create valuable traits through precise modification of plant genomes. We have built a world-class team of plant geneticists and molecular biologists who have created the premier nuclease-mediated genome-editing platform in plants.

In order to accelerate the adoption of our healthier food products by farmers, we combine them with traits that we have also developed with our technology for improved agricultural efficiency.
