Cellectis Plant Sciences renamed Calyxt
French genomics company Cellectis has changed the name of its US subsidiary, Cellectis Plant Sciences (Saint Paul, Minnesota), to Calyxt. The move is aimed at further distinguishing the parent company's focus from that of its subsidiary, Cellectis points out. Calyxt is focusing on the development of crops with healthier characteristics. They include soybeans with reduced trans-fat oil, canola with lower saturated fat content, wheat with reduced gluten, and improved quality potatoes.
