In less than two years, Puregene has established a fully operational next-generation breeding pipeline. This pipeline is supported by the extensive research and development network with academic and industry partners.
At the core of Puregene’s research pipeline lies the world’s most complete source of genetic information from cannabis, Puregene’s Super-pangenome. Our genetics, biotechnology as well as data science experts analyze and characterize this genetic data to understand traits like cannabinoid composition, pathogen and climate resistance, aroma, flowering duration, and productivity. With a functional understanding of these genes, we design new varieties to improve and expand the genetic offer in the cannabis marketplace rapidly.
More recently, Puregene has been granted a major THC-Permit to conduct research on all possible germplasms opening up the fields to R&D on all cannabis and hemp varieties. Holding one of the largest legal THC variety collections, we now also harness the breeding potential of high-THC varieties to ever-improve the cannabis and hemp plant.
