Plant epigenetics applied to achieving faster growth, environmental tolerance and disease resistance

1,006 views

Published on

Faster growing, earlier maturing, higher yielding trees - natural, fertile and stable
Trees tolerating deep environmental stresses from salt, climate, drought and mining waste
Plants resisting disease - by design, and without resort to Genetic Engineering (ie, no GMO)

Plant epigenetics applied to achieving faster growth, environmental tolerance and disease resistance

  2. 2. 3 outcomes of applied :1. Faster growing, higher yielding, tougher plants – via natural gene duplication (polyploidy)2. Stress tolerant plants – tolerating salinity, toxicity, aridity & climate change3. Disease resistant plants – totally resisting virus, bacteria & fungi ©2013 PolyGenomX
  3. 3. 9 Key Facts1. A natural process (products are not GMO)2. Plants are fertile3. Induced traits are heritable through generations4. Applies to all species (including food)5. Identifiable (unique genetic fingerprint)6. Can be easily monetised7. Income multiplies as plants propagate8. Unique technology (no competitors)9. Protected by leveraged Patent strategy ©2013 PolyGenomX
  4. 4. 1. Polygenomic Plants• Naturally induced gene duplication (polyploidy)• More CO2 efficient – +50%• Faster growth – 30% shorter harvest cycle• Higher yield earlier – 30%+ from same inputs• More robust – utilise marginal land• More water efficient – for a drier world• Climate tough – for a hotter world ©2013 PolyGenomX
