We are very proud to announce a partnership with the University of California, Davis to conduct research on the cannabis genome! Specifically, we are working on a new reference genome for a hemp varietal with Dr. Dario Cantu, Professor in the Department of Viticulture and Enology.
“We have successfully applied cutting-edge DNA sequencing technologies and computational approaches to study challenging genomes of diverse crops and associated microorganisms. We are now excited to have the opportunity to study the genome of hemp. Decoding its genome will allow us to gain new insight into the genetic bases of complex pathways of secondary metabolism in plants,” said Dr. Cantu.
