GEiGS® – Gene Editing induced Gene Silencing – new technology for crops, livestock and aquaculture

This video introduces GEiGS® – Gene Editing induced Gene Silencing from Tropic Biosciences. This new technology combines the benefits of gene editing and RNAi in a single platform that enables critical disease resistance and valuable quality improvement traits across crops, livestock, and aquaculture. GEiGS® uses universal gene editing tools such as CRISPR, to minimally edit the host’s own non-coding genes and redirect their silencing activity (RNAi) towards any desired target gene or gene family. GEiGS-BioCompute is the cutting edge bioinformatics platform that designs gene editing solutions to allow precise and effective implementation of GEiGS® technology. The GEiGS® platform combines benefits of both gene editing and RNA interference (RNAi) to enable the development of non-transgenic yet hereditary gene silencing applications.
