Chromatin, Inc Company Profile

00:16 EDT 24th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Chromatin is unlocking the potential of plants to produce greater value and meaningful products for consumers, growers, seed producers, and processors. At the same time, the company’s technology can benefit the environment through decreased use of pesticides and fertilizers.

The company’s mini-chromosome technology simultaneously introduces multiple genetic traits into plants, reducing the time and cost required to develop improved and novel crop-based products, such as medicines, biomaterials, textiles and nutritionally improved foods. These products are enabled while allowing growers to enjoy the benefits of the most up-to-date agronomic traits, such as herbicide tolerance, pest resistance, and diseases resistance.

Chromatin’s patented mini-chromosome technologies enable the development of new seed products and the delivery of multiple genetic traits.

Consumers, growers, seed companies, and processors will derive greater value from crop plants through the application of Chromatin’s technologies.

More efficient and faster product development, greater product differentiation, and creation of novel products are among the benefits Chromatin’s technologies deliver to these users.

Chromatin is based in Chicago, and has additional laboratory and greenhouse operations at Champaign, Illinois.
