AEC’s Offers Proven Solution to the Agricultural industries worldwide.

Our technology affects epigenetic gene silencing and, therefore, is not trait specific but rather dependent on the “stress agent” and its interaction with the plant. This induces native preservation mechanisms in the plant. We use cutting edge sequencing technology to pinpoint markers and changes in expression patterns associated with abiotic and biotic stresses. This information is compiled with other factors such as environmental data and the developmental stage of the plant from which a comprehensive model is created. This model is then used to develop the platform needed to make the necessary manipulation at the genome level. The manipulation is designed to selectively direct epigenetic changes within the genome and will include changes to methylation patterns, chromatin structure and expression patterns which regulate the plants acclimation and adaptation to stress; its hybrid and heterozygote vigour; its bacterial and viral resistance. These processes regulate most trans generational changes in genome stability. Since this technology relies on genes present but silenced in the plant genome, it is only a matter of reactivating silenced genes. These genes may be scatted throughout the genome and which in turn may produce totally new gene pathways to deal with any abiotic or biotic stress such as Liberibacter. It is important to note the technology is classified as non-GM. The latest research to date on the role the environment plays in shaping of epigenetic mechanisms within the plant may account up for to 60% of the final phenotype of that plant.
