State-of-the-Art Fully Automated Computer Controlled Genetically Modified Plant Cloning Incubators
AKRON, Ohio, Aug. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Controlled Environment Genomics Inc. (CEG), a subsidiary of Gala Global, Inc. (GLAG), today announced that it has successfully filed a provisional patent application on its proprietary, fully automated, computer-controlled, genetically modified plant cloning technology through the company’s IP legal counsel, Los Angeles-based Tucker Ellis LLP.
Under U.S. patent law, the provisional application is a legal document which is filed in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to establish an early filing date. The application will mature into an issued patent when CEG files a regular non-provisional patent application within one year.
CEG is a start-up biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of computer-controlled digital plant cloning incubators for use in the agricultural and biopharmaceutical industries.
Gala Global Inc. is a publicly-traded development firm specializing in equity investments, debt financing and mergers and acquisitions in the biotech industry. It targets investments in companies commercializing biotechnologies, including indoor agriculture, molecular biology, genetics and biopharmaceutical compounds.
“We are excited to have completed this first major milestone in the development of our turnkey digital plant cloning incubation systems,” said Gala Global CEO Timothy Madden. “The next major accomplishment in the very near future will be the completion of the first commercial-use system in the research laboratory at the University of Akron’s Department of Biomedical Engineering.”
CEG is also collaborating with technology partner GenoBreeding Inc., Anaheim, Calif., on developing breeding tools such as molecular markers to enable productive plant breeding decisions and processes that achieve top-tier plant performance in a sustainable manner.
CEG’s state-of-the-art genomics technology enables GenoBreeding to digitally sequence the genomes of the most desirable plant varieties based on flavor and nutrition. Desirable traits can then be used to improve the most desirable commercial varieties with traits like increased yield and quality, thus enhancing consumer demand for the product and increasing the company’s profitability.
GenoBreeding is also developing a proprietary digital genetic database that will be used as an online cloud-based library of digitally sequenced genomes and phenotypic (chemical composition) information on all existing and new plant varieties.
CEG’s proprietary digital plant cloning technology will enable GenoBreeding geneticists to select the best plant varieties to hybridize with the aim of improving and increasing crop quality and yields by combining the very best genetics to maximize the variation of positive inherited characteristics in each variety.
