Mission Statement

Our mission is to develop plant based solutions to address economic, social, and environmental challenges of the 21st century.

By studying plant growth at the genetic and cellular level, we can now engineer crops for increased yield with no additional land, water, or fertilizer use requirements. With a specific focus on non-food crops, we have developed methods to enhance a plant’s natural ability to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) and convert that energy towards increased biomass production.
