The Gala Global team uses its experience to help companies make the most of their potential in a complex business world
The rapidly evolving market of plant genetics and plant genomics is a key part of the growing scientific and economic ecosystem spurred by the advent of high-throughput genome sequencing.
The small flowering mustard plant Arabidopsis thaliana, easy to grow in the laboratory and featuring a relatively small genome (just five chromosomes), was the gold standard for plant research in the 1980s. As a result, in 2000 Arabidopsis was the first plant to be completely sequenced.
Flash forward and in 2016 the global genome editing market reached US$2.84 billion in value and is expected to reach US$5.54 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 14.3%, according to a 2016 report from Markets and Markets titled “Genome Editing/Genome Engineering Market.”
According to the report, the global genome editing market is segmented on the basis of technology, application, end user and region.
Understanding Genetics and Genomics
Genetics — the study of heredity and the variation of inherited characteristic
Genomics — an interdisciplinary field of science and branch of molecular biology focusing on the structure, function, evolution and mapping of genomes – complete sets of DNA within single cells of an organism.
Genomic — related to the complete set of genes or genetic material present in a cell or organism.
Genome — the complete set of genes or genetic material present in a cell or organism.
Genotype — an organism’s complete heritable genetic identity
Phenotype — the set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment.
