  • HYPER-REC : a technology to stimulate genetic recombinations Open or Close
    P2P 4a Success Stories  The HYPER-REC technology helps to reduce the number of crossovers and the size of populations in the process of varietal selection in all species, whilst increasing the number of meiotic recombinations by a factor of 7.5. This technology is based on the introgression of natural recessive mutations in elite genetic material in plants upstream of a selection procedure.
