Our Fulcrum™ Platform

A complete suite of novel technologies and proprietary tools for applying CRISPR innovations to create commercially-viable products with differentiated plant genetics.

Let's Grow Something Amazing Together

Why choose our Fulcrum™ Platform?

Most genomic variation that occurs in nature is more complicated than if a particular gene is "on" or "off." So what do you do when you need more than a cutting tool?

Enter our Fulcrum Platform - the most extensively developed and validated toolbox for CRISPR application in plants, designed for cutting, base editing, and templated editing DNA in plants.

How do we know it works?

Our expert scientists use a variety of methods, including multiplexing, to achieve unprecedented results - like the ability to make 17 precise edits in a single plant to deliver the first CRISPR food to the U.S. market.

By pairing the transformative prowess of CRISPR with our proprietary gene editing tools, like SHARC™ and REDRAW™, you now have the leverage to tune plant characteristics and deliver commercially-viable products unique to your business.

Learn about our Fulcrum Platform in under 2 minutes.
