NRGene and Kayagene Introduce the First Fully-Phased Cannabis Genome

February 13, 2019

In a breakthrough research, NRGene, a leading agricultural genomics company based in Israel, and Kayagene, a California-based cannabis breeding company, have announced the completion of the first fully-phased cannabis genome using NRGene's DeNovoMAGIC technology.

"We have now only begun to realize the potential in cannabis, as over 99% of its genetic diversity was never studied," said Dr. Gil Ronen, President of NRGene. "Our fully-phased genomes reveal the hidden secrets of diverse cannabis strains and enable us to efficiently implement them for future treatments of multiple human medical conditions," he added.
