Resumen:
Una spin-out de un instituto de investigación esloveno está desarrollando métodos convencionales y alternativos para explotar el potencial genético de la heterosis (mayor vigor de la descendencia frente a los padres) en trigo común con el fin de mejorar el cultivo. Se trata de un método innovador de formación y explotación de germoplasma de trigo mediante el desarrollo de variedades comerciales. Este enfoque también puede aplicarse a otras plantas económicamente importantes. La empresa busca socios financieros e industriales con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica, desarrollo conjunto o joint venture.

Tittle:
Development of superior varieties of wheat
Summary:
A spin-out company of a Slovenian research institute is developing conventional and alternative methods for exploiting the genetic potential of heterosis (higher fitness of progeny over the parents) in grasses, particularly common wheat, for the purpose of improved breeding of wheat. Financial partners and/or industrial partners for technical cooperation / joint development or a joint venture, are sought.
Description:
Regional and global seed markets are saturated by different varieties of wheat whose genetic potential is on the level of the year 2000 or even further back. Global consumption of wheat is increasing, and agricultural areas are shrinking, pushing breeders to improve the yield potential of new wheat varieties. Extant native lines of wheat have weak genetic potential, making it difficult to foresee further improvement. Investigation of hexaploid wheat pre-ancestors for exploitation of heterosis (higher fitness of progeny over the parents) is at an early development stage; nevertheless it already shows added value in modern wheat breeding. The invention represents an innovative way of modern wheat germplasm formation and exploitation through development of commercial varieties.

The described approach to wheat breeding may be applied to other economically important plants as well.

The company seeks industrial agricultural biotechnology companies with experience in plant breeding, seed production and / or agricultural chemicals production, for joint development of the technology, such as adaptation to other economically important plants, field testing, and seed production. The company will benefit from partners with capacities of expanding their present activities. Partners for entering joint ventures, and/or financial partners, are likewise sought for the financial support of the company´s activities.

The founders of the spin-out company are also researchers at the leading Slovenian public research institute and are among the leading scientists in their respective departments with strong international publication records. They are experts in organic chemistry, applied pharmacology, plant genetics, and biotechnology, with the focus on development of environmentally friendly organic synthesis and genetics. Their collaboration with the pharmaceutical industry have resulted in a patent and are already implemented in the production. The spin-off company focuses on research and development activites in genetics, biotechnology and agrochemistry, and is active in the field of commercial breeding of field crops.
Advantages and Innovations:
The approach does not include, produce, or apply genetically modified organisms produced by (expensive) genetic engineering, nor does it apply environmentally harmful agro-chemicals. The technology uses targeted evolution by breeding of ancestors of native hexaploid wheat in order to develop highly productive genetics. Thus obtained wheat varieties offer superiority with high productivity and good adaptability to changing environmental conditions. The cost of described technology is similar to classical breeding procedures and is therefore acceptable for further commercial exploitation.

The described technology represents a method for exploitation of heterosis in the first filial generation, and generations which follow the first filial generation. Heterosis is thus preserved as a uniform genotype.
