Cibus Global’s Rapid Trait Development System (RTDS™) technology is an environmentally-friendly, smart-breeding technology that enables seed producers to develop plants with commercially valuable characteristics. Unlike genetic engineering, which inserts exotic genetic material from one species into another, RTDS introduces genetic traits through a natural process of gene repair. RTDS delivers the advantages that farmers seek in GMO crops, such as crop product protection tolerance or increased yield, and benefits from the clear path to market and consumer confidence of traditionally bred plants. RTDS has a number of applications in agriculture and other areas of opportunity where precise, fine structure changes in genes can be applied to create or improve a new product.
