Our Story

Pioneering Precision Gene Editing

Cibus was founded to lead a new era in gene editing. Its vision was a gene editing industry without the use of transgenes or foreign DNA that are associated with GMO technologies; An industry whose products were indistinguishable from nature and would be regulated on the same basis as traditional breeding;

An industry that could help farmers tackle the challenges presented by the environment such as disease, weeds and pests in a more sustainable way with less chemicals, fuel and manpower.

Our Technology

At Cibus, we are ushering in a new era of plant breeding techniques.

We are accomplishing this using RTDS: our proprietary family of non-transgenic, gene-editing technologies and our expertise in genomics, genomics data and cell culture.

Our Business

Non-GMO Gene Editing
Non-GMO Gene Editing

We are leaders in a new class of breeding techniques called: NBTs or New Breeding Technologies based on precision gene editing.

Our technology does not use transgenes or recombinant material. Our traits are indistinguishable from traits derived from traditional breeding or nature.

Crop Protection Traits
Crop Protection Traits

Trait products are crop specific precisely edited genetic sequences associated with a specific characteristic in a specific crop.

Our product focus is traits that enable farmers to have higher yields and reduce the use of the Crop Protection chemicals and fertilizers.
