Ceres licenses data visualisation system to Bayer

The US agricultural biotechnology and seed company, Ceres (Thousand Oaks, California), has granted a non-exclusive licence for its Persephone genome visualisation technology to Bayer CropScience.

Ceres has used the system in its marker-assisted breeding and biotechnology trait programmes to accelerate the development of elite parental breeding lines and improved sorghum hybrids for Brazil.
