    To fulfill biofuels’ promise, scientists boost plant oils with gene editing
    November 25, 2018

    To Peoples, the future looks promising. A 20% increase in the yield of conventional oil crops like canola and soybean could boost the economic value of these crops by $10 billion, he says. If the current techniques work well in camelina, the company will attempt similar gene edits in canola and soybeans.

    Although Yield10’s primary goal is to sell its camelina oil for human health products and as an ingredient for agricultural animal feed rather than as a feedstock for biofuels, Peoples says the gene-editing discovery made by Yield10 could be beneficial for that type of application too.

    Yield10 won’t disclose the exact edits its scientists made to improve camelina’s oil production, citing proprietary information. But presentation slides shared online on Nov. 4 for investors indicate that edits to genes that the firm calls C3008a, C3008b, and C3009 work to increase oil production by simultaneously increasing fatty acid biosynthesis and blocking the metabolism of the synthesized lipid.

    At the same time, Yield10’s Canadian subsidiary, Metabolix Oilseeds, is working to edit a gene the company has called C3007 in camelina and canola. Gene C3007 encodes a protein that negatively regulates a key enzyme in fatty acid biosynthesis, acetyl-CoA carboxylase. By decreasing the activity of this negative regulator, the firm aims to boost the enzyme’s activity and make more plant oil.

    Increasing Crop Yield Through Smart Approaches In Trait Discovery
    December 3, 2018
    https://sciencetrends.com/increasing-crop-yield-through-smart-approaches-in-trait-discovery/

    In Yield10’s research, the use of these models from the perspective of the company’s trait discovery and development program are detailed extensively, and one day may make significant impacts on the cost and timeline for developing new yield traits for major row crops – all of which could help in the challenge of addressing global food security challenges.

    Yield10 Bioscience (YTEN) Now Covered by National Securities
    Jan 25th, 2019
    https://www.modernreaders.com/news/...-yten-now-covered-by-national-securities.html

    Yield10 Bioscience logoInvestment analysts at National Securities initiated coverage on shares of Yield10 Bioscience (NASDAQ:YTEN) in a report issued on Wednesday, The Fly reports. The brokerage set a “buy” rating and a $5.00 price target on the specialty chemicals company’s stock.

    Commercial Relationships In Early Stages. Since late 2017, two research license agreements have been reached with Monsanto and Forage Genetics International, major players in the soybean and sorghum markets, respectively. While these are research agreements for now, we believe these announcements validate Yield10’s technology and represent the kind of relationships that could generate commercial revenue.

    High Ceiling Value. Between the value of the IP portfolio in the near term, and the potential value provided by commercial revenue streams, we believe shares of Yield10 could prove to be materially undervalued at current levels. Should commercialization agreements materialize, we believe our twelve month price target could prove to be conservative.”
