Evogene Ltd. is an Israel-based biotechnology company that is engaged in research and development in the field of improved plants. The Company focuses on the development of technology to identify gene sequences, Deoxyribonucleic Acid (D.N.A.) sequences that are responsible for producing proteins (genes), and other D.N.A. sequences in plants (D.N.A. sequences), which are likely to improve one or more of the plant�s traits. These improvements are implemented through introducing the genes into the target plant, resulting in the seeds obtained there from containing the target trait. In addition, the Company is involved in the characterization and breeding of designated non-edible crops that are likely to be used in the future for the production of oil for the biodiesel industry. The Company holds Avogene Inc., a United States-based company.
