Yokohama Bio Technology Co., Ltd.
R&D-based startup centered on technology related to plant gene expression
We are a Yokohama National University startup that develops new plant protectants with low environmental loads and provides screening and evaluation research. We assist in the development of biostimulants (new plant protectants), which are attracting attention in the agricultural field, centered on technologies related to plant gene expression.
- Business description
Contract research services
We provide contract research services for screening and evaluation of biostimulants (new plant protectants) using technology to visualize gene expression from substances and other materials you possess. For biostimulants, the target is everything that stimulates crops, not only compounds, natural products, and microorganisms, but also physical stimuli such as light and vibration that exhibit specific wavelengths as environmental conditions, so our products can be used by manufacturers in a wide range of fields. Our screening track record, profiling track record, etc. are posted on our company website, so please be sure to view it.
What is a biostimulant?
A biostimulant is a plant protectant that protects plants from biological stresses such as filamentous fungi and bacteria, as well as abiotic stresses such as dehydration and high temperatures. This is done by enhancing a plant’s natural stress tolerance, or “immunity.” Stress tolerance is exhibited by increasing the production of substances called phytohormones in plant cells and inducing gene expression (a series of processes that synthesize proteins) involved in stress tolerance.
