Evogene's mission is to be a world leader in delivering improved plant traits to the Agbio and Biofuel industries through the use of a continuously improving proprietary platform combining state-of-the-art computational genomics, molecular biology and advanced breeding methods.

Evogene's technological platform provides computational gene and promoter discovery capabilities as well as model and target plant transformation capabilities, coupled with standard and unique plant selection systems used in greenhouses and under field conditions. This platform enables rapid discovery and validation of novel genes, promoters and molecular markers with high relevance to the trait of choice which are further introduced into elite commercial crops.

Evogene partners with leading seed and Ag-chemical companies, who introduce our proprietary genes and promoters into elite commercial seed lines. A number of improved plant traits are in relatively advanced stages of development, such as plants displaying improved nitrogen use efficiency and plants displaying improved tolerance to abiotic stress. The latter trait is currently being introduced into commercial lines through collaboration with leading seed companies.

Evogene is traded in the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE:EVGN), and is proud to employ more than 30 mathematicians, computers scientists, plant scientists, biologists and plant breeders
