Divergence Inc., Company Profile

23:00 EST 19th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Divergence Inc., a world leader in the application of genomics to agriculture and infectious disease, discovers and develops proprietary products for the safe and effective control of parasitic diseases. Plant parasitic nematodes are the largest unsolved pest problem in agricultural chemistry. Despite billions of dollars in annual crop damage, current means of control are limited and environmentally damaging. Parasitic nematodes also pose major health risks to humans and animals, and resistance to current drugs is increasingly a problem in livestock infections. Breakthroughs at Divergence are demonstrating that comparative and functional genomics can revolutionize the future of parasite control in plants, animals, and humans.
