Gene editing & Crop Breeding to Develop High Protein Soybeans

Time: 3:30 pm
day: Day One


  • Amfora is developing two categories of soybeans with increased protein content.
  • Amfora’s core technology is using gene editing to drive increased expression of NF-YC4, which results in a phenotype of increased protein at the expense of carbohydrates.
  • We are using a combination of unique germplasm, modern genomics-based crop breeding and new breeding technologies to develop and commercialize valuable products for food and aquaculture applications.
