Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Potyvirus viral detection kitCSIC and the Universitat Politècnica de València have developed a method for the detection and quantification of all species of the viral genus Potyvirus present in plant samples. The different species of the genus Potyvirus cause losses of up to 90% of production in crops of high economic interest, such as potato, maize or sugar cane. So far, the only way to identify that the crop was being attacked by a virus of the genus Potyvirus was to make specific detections for each species of the genus. With this new system it is possible to determine if in the samples coming from a culture there is presence of one of the 148 known species of the genus Potyvirus or of some unknown variant of these species. Companies in the agro-food sector interested in incorporating this kit for viral detection are being sought. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Effective method for plant wound healingCSIC and the Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics have developed an effective method for plant tissue regeneration that involves the use of a bacterial cellulose-based biopolymer. The application of this material directly in plant wounds enhances the formation of new cells layers which boosts the healing processes. Industrial partners are being sought to exploit the existing know-how through a patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Service of plant in vitro culture and genetic characterization, focused on forest tree species.The research group on Agroforestry Biotechnology at Alcalá University and the INIA's Unit on Forest Tree Genomics offer a mixed service consisting of micropropagation and plant genotyping, focused on forest tree species, through in vitro culture and molecular markers of high discriminatory power. The in vitro culture is carried out at facilities of Alcalá University, being the INIA the institution in charge of the plant genotyping for their delivery once they have been molecularly characterized. Other plants obtained by other means can be also genotyped as well. Both institutions seek to reach commercial agreements with forestry, reforestation, horticultural companies, plant nurseries, companies specialized on cultivation of woody species to obtain biomass, agrarian transformation companies, ornamental companies and municipalities or local administrations interested in the maintenance of native species. Also, this service would be of special interest for pharmaceutical companies in obtaining bioproducts in general (i.e. willow-Acetyl Salicylic Acid, yew-Taxol, Maritime Pine-Pycnogenol and other active ingredients), and chemical companies interested in obtaining resins and other derivatives.

The annual value of the hybrid seeds in Spain, Mexico and Israel is greater than 120 million. Utilizing Dr. Elkind's 28 years of knowledge and expertise in developing pepper varieties together with the germplasm available at the Hebrew University, the Pilpel Seeds Company will primarily focus in providing superior and unique pepper seeds to the local and international markets. Varieties with innovative, unique and sustainable traits that will improve the profitability of the growers. Later, the company intends to extend research and development to other peer segments as well as tomatoes. Project ID : 8-2018-6689
