Leading Genomics Company Expands Operations to Canada with Saskatoon Office
The Government of Saskatchewan is welcoming NRGene, a leading genomics company, to the province. Headquartered in Israel, the company announced they are expanding their operations to Canada and will be opening an office in Saskatoon.
This investment from NRGene follows a successful trade mission to Israel in 2018, where Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison and Deputy Premier Gordon Wyant met with the company to highlight opportunities in Saskatchewan. The purpose of the trade mission was to showcase Saskatchewan’s business environment and our world class agriculture sector, as well as to encourage Israeli companies to establish a presence in the province.
“This announcement is good news for Saskatchewan and it is a positive sign that the province’s investment climate remains strong, despite the current challenges due to the global COVID-19 pandemic,” Harrison said. “NRGene will be a great fit for Saskatchewan’s agricultural sciences cluster, bringing good jobs and capacity that will enhance our innovative AgTech, and increasing productivity in the agri-food sector.”
NRGene is a genomics AI company that provides turn-key solutions to support agricultural research and breeding. Relying on a vast proprietary genomic database and AI-based technologies, NRGene provides some of the largest ag-based companies in the world with the computational tools they require to improve breeding of crop plants and farm animals, thus increasing food production from every acre of agricultural land. NRGene’s tools have been implemented by leading seed, ag-chemical and ag biotech companies worldwide, as well as by many influential research teams in academia.
