Presentation given by Torben Jahrmann from Semillas Fitó in the framework of the Emergence Forum Barcelona

Biocat organized the Barcelona Emergence Forum (April 10-11th, 2014, Congress Palace, Montjuïc) supported by the TRANSBIO SUDOE, a translational cooperation project dedicated to innovation in life sciences in South-West Europe. The Barcelona Emergence Forum contributed to bringing together Academics, Companies, Investment Entities, Technology Platforms and Technology Transfer Offices from Spain, France and Portugal to set up collaborative projects on Human Health & Agro-food Innovation.

Torben Jahrmann / Semillas Fitó, accelerating classical plant breeding by the use of biotechnology

  1. 1. Semillas Fitó, accelerating classical plant breeding by the use of biotechnology
  2. 2. The importance of Breeding DUNCAN GRAHAM-ROWE, Nature 2011 UC Davis, 2009
  3. 3. New technologies · Enabling technologies getting cheaper Next generation sequencing More precise and cheaper genotyping Plant Cell Biology · Whole genome sequencing · Resequencing · Genotyping by sequencing · Bulk segregant Analysis · Gene discovery · Mutant screening · Precise selection in Breeding based on genetic information · Quick mapping for Marker development · Tighter quality control of produced Hybrid seeds · Plant regeneration · Micropropagation · Chromsome doubling · Double haploids · Molecule delivery
  4. 4. Multinational About us Industry-leading, with over 135 years of experience. A clear reference point in the Mediterranean and Latin America. Sales in over 70 countries. Own subsidiaries in Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Turkey, Jordan and Mexico. More than 55% of turnover corresponds to export. >480 employees world wide
  5. 5. R&D&i R&D&i: Mainstays of growth of Semillas Fitó Annual investment of 15% of its turnover in R&D&i Extensive network of collaborating growers who try new varieties to see if they suit every country, every region, every climate, etc. About us
  6. 6. R&D&I at Semillas Fitó R+D+i Breeding Biotech 5-7 years Genomic Breeding tools Natural resistances Higher Yield Higher Fruit quality Better Shelf life Better Taste
  7. 7. R&D&I at Semillas Fitó R+D+i Breeding Biotech 5-7 years Genomic Breeding tools Cell Biology Natural resistances Higher Yield Higher Fruit quality Better Shelf life Better Taste
  8. 8. R&D&I at Semillas Fitó R+D+i Breeding Biotech 5-7 years Genomic Breeding tools Cell Biology Genetic Variability Natural resistances Higher Yield Higher Fruit quality Better Shelf life Better Taste
  9. 9. R&D&I at Semillas Fitó R+D+i Breeding Biotech 5-7 years Genomic Breeding tools Cell Biology Genetic Variability Natural resistances Higher Yield Higher Fruit quality Better Shelf life Better Taste 2-4 years
  10. 10. Outlook Challenges and opportunities · New Breeding tools -> Cisgenesis -> Site directed mutagenesis -> Reverse Breeding -> Genomic Selection · Automated and more precise phenotyping · Epigenetics FOR CREATING BETTER CROPS
