2Blades manages a portfolio of owned or in-licensed technologies encompassing specific traits and enabling technologies. Development of a set of these technologies can be seen in our current projects. Additional technology development activities are described under Technology Development.
A selection of 2Blades’ managed technologies:
Plant gene that interferes with bacterial virulence system from pepper. Useful as a marker for pepper breeding and as a genome editing target in other crops.
Citrus trees with resistance to citrus canker using a pathogen inducible defense system. Tested for citrus canker resistance.
Modular DNA binding domains. A powerful genome modification and editing technology and winner of the 2012 Agrow award for best new agricultural biotechnology.
Pathogen inducible promoters and their use in enhancing the disease resistance of plants. Tested in citrus, tomato, and cassava.
Methods of enhancing resistance to bacterial pathogens using basal immunity receptors. Tested in a wide range of crops including tomato, citrus, wheat, apple and potato.
The pepper Bs3 gene and methods of use as a resistance gene.
The Bs2 resistance gene from pepper. Core technology for resistance to bacterial diseases of tomatoes.
Tomato plants comprising transgenic event Bs2-X5.
RPS2 gene family, primers and probes, a member typifying the NLR family of resistance genes.
Plant pathogen resistance genes that typify the structure of receptor-like protein resistance genes
