EpiMethyl Analytic Technology
How EpiMethyl Analytic Technology Works
When a plant decides to react to its environment, it triggers the epigenetic action – turning one gene “up” and another “down.” EpiCrop Technologies has analyzed the precise molecular effects (methylation) and the gene networks involved when the change occurs.
What happens at the molecular level can indicate which “decision” the plant has taken. By analyzing whole-genome DNA methylation and applying machine learning, we can predict the outcome the plant will likely experience.
EpiCrop Technologies’ patent-protected technology can identify the plants making the “best decisions” – those producing optimal epigenetic changes – speeding up the processes of getting improved seed to market. This platform can be broadly used, with applications in healthcare, diagnostics, and more.
