Unmasking genetic variation: why Platform Genetics’ Deep Variant Scanning and cannabis breeding are a perfect fit
Cannabis is an immature crop following decades of prohibition. Think corn roughly a hundred years ago. So when it comes to trait development, the possibilities are endless.
CASE STUDY – Differentiating Tomato Flavour with Deep Variant Scanning
In 2013, the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers identified a “market pull” for tomatoes with differentiated flavour.
CASE STUDY – Broad-range disease resistance in greenhouse vegetables
Researchers at the University of Toronto have discovered a family of genes that make plants resistant to a broad range of plant diseases. Over the last several years, they have been working with Vineland Research and Innovation Centre (Vineland) to further develop these genes, using a reverse genetics platform founded on Deep Variant Scanning (DVS).
