A research group of a Hungarian university developed a system able to create transgenic plants, extract plant DNA, RNA, and perform the traditional real-time PCR (Polimerase Chain Reaction), RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA). The research group is looking for partners wishing to use the services of the researchers in the field of plant protection and agriculture.
A plant biology research team working in one of the most advanced interdisciplinary research center of Hungary has adequate research experiences in the fields of plant protection and agriculture. The research team has a plant molecular biology laboratory which enables: - Extract plant DNA, RNA - agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis - the traditional real-time PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA) and other PCR based analyses - create transgenic plants. In addition, the research team has a reference wine farm where they are able to perform real tests, laboratory-level research and analyses, and they are capable of integrating the new information obtained during the production. The offered service is available to technological and market participants and to other researches. The research team seeks to sell its services with the result that more partners take it: organizations or companies from the area of agriculture, plant protection, health and natural sciences. The research team is looking for partners to supplement its services, to develop a more complex and higher added value service package: so they would be able to offer their services at a higher value.
Innovations and advantages
The most important advantages of the application method are the following: - The application method is configurable to specific partner claims - High level of precision - Comprehensive documentation of the completed measurements and analyses - Extract plant DNA, RNA - Agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis - The traditional real-time PCR - Create transgenic plants. The results of the research and expert knowledge are validated in real conditions at the group's wine farm, and the experiences gained from the production are integrated in related research services.

Area of partner's activity
The organization intends to offer its services to industrial research labs and other research institutions. The potential partners conduct research and are active in agriculture, plant protection, health and natural sciences. The group looks for cooperative partners who - intend to develop new technologies - intend to improve their current technologies - demand this service to operate their innovative technologies.
