In order to advance our world-class nursery, we have teamed up with global biotechnology leader Intrexon to develop custom hybrid strains using their high-throughput plant regeneration Botticelli™ platform.
The Botticelli™ platform is an advanced tissue culture technology designed to enable efficient propagation of plants. When applied to cannabis, Botticelli™ offers potential for a sustainable, scalable, and more economical solution than conventional clones. For details on the program read the March 22 News Release.
Together we will be pursuing to develop strains that are immune to harmful pathogens, improve plant consistency and optimize plant traits to bring to market. Next Green Wave and Intrexon will be conducting the groundwork from our Research & Innovation Facility scheduled to open later in 2019.
