Update

PGI develops DNA sequence-based predictive algorithms, or Genome Apps, to guide livestock breeding and to assess human reproductive health. The company was created in 1999 based on a unique Mouse Model System to identify genes controlling fertility and reproductive longevity in mammals. Previous R&D showed that genes identified with the Model could predict productive lifetime (herd life) of Holstein dairy cows with 30% accuracy. The proof-of-concept, achieved with now-outdated genomics technologies, was leveraged by the Company to form a strategic collaboration with a major player in the livestock genomics market. PGI is currently closing financing of $250K from venture capital and $150K from grant sources to refine the analysis of the Model using the latest DNA Sequence technologies and work with the Industry Partner to validate applications of the Fertility Genes for livestock breeding. The business model is based on: 1)... See More
