Agritech R&D Solution

Revolutionize Your Agritech R&D Pipeline

Design seeds and traits, develop innovative agritech products, and document experiments and field work, all within a unified digital solution.

Tomorrow's Agritech demands a future-ready R&D solution

Agritech is revolutionizing agricultural production, and helping to ensure food security, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and utilize natural resources more efficiently. To make these breakthrough innovations, R&D teams require enabling informatics tools that span chemistry, genomics, and sample tracking.

Key disciplines in this field, such as seeds, traits, and crop protection, need to integrate data across multiple domains for a holistic view of individual programs and cross-team efforts. This includes the ability to map relationships between genes, traits, plant materials, and pedigrees, and utilize this contextual data to drive plant selection and product commercialization.

“We can look at a plant and simultaneously know not only the plasmid we used, but it’s exact sequence and dozens of aspects about it. This fact takes us from using Benchling as a plant inventory system to Benchling as a fully integrated biotechnology pipeline.”
