We are looking for collaboration opportunities in project consortia and would like to offer our expertise. IDEN has two interconnected research areas:
- CROP IMPROVEMENT: The genetic modification of crops that increases the performance of plants for agricultural benefit. Characters such as yield, stress response and nutrient quality are in the main scope of IDEN.
- Exploiting the natural capacity of plants, we identify gene traits linked with interesting plant features to develop new crop varieties with higher yield, enhanced quality parameters and/or abiotic stress resistance.
- Plant breeding technologies are applied to some of the global main crops like corn, wheat, potato and barley adapting the use of traits to the client and market needs.
- AGROBIOLOGICALS: The discovery and commercialisation of new microorganisms-derived compounds that increase the yield in different crops.
TOPICS of INTEREST
I. Enhancement of predictive breeding technologies and development of new genotypes leading to new phenotypes and crop varieties for improvement of plant health, protection, production and resilience
II. Development and exploitation of novel integrated pest and crop management methods and practices
III. Improvement of resource-use efficiency of crops and cropping systems
Iden Biotechnology S.L. (IDEN) is a SME which main interest is the development and commercialisation of agrobiotechnology products and technologies for the improvement of crop quality and yield. IDEN´s value proposition is based on increasing crop yield while reducing the impact of crop protection.
IDEN is located in Cordovilla, Navarra (Spain), and it was founded in 2005 by members of the research group of Carbohydrate Metabolism of the Agrobiotechnology Institute of Navarra (IdAB) belonging to the CSIC (Spanish National Research Council).
IDEN holds a broad expertise in plant and microorganisms culture, greenhouse and open field cultivation, fermentative processes, biochemical techniques as well as molecular biology techniques. A total of 23 people constitutes IDEN’s personnel, 70% of which participates in R&D, 30% of which have a PhD degree.
Moreover, IDEN has a close relationship with several scientific institutions for basic research programs development and counts for its advisor panel on highly qualified and worldly known experts. In addition, IDEN has a wide experience in European, National and Regional R&D Projects.
