- Crop development group to evaluate Persephone for its global product segments
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Sept. 29, 2015 -- Ceres, Inc. (CERE), an agricultural biotechnology company, today announced that KWS SAAT SE, a global seed developer with operations in over 70 counties, will evaluate Ceres' Persephone bioinformatics technology under a license agreement.
Originally developed for in-house use by Ceres, the Persephone system allows researchers to organize, store, access and explore a diverse array of DNA-related information in much the same way online mapping programs allow users to explore geographic regions and locations.
"We look forward to working with researchers at KWS to demonstrate how Persephone can help deliver complex genomic information directly to its diverse product development groups," said Tim Swaller, Ceres Vice President of Genomic Technologies.
