cymra-pre-clinical

Pre-Clinical

  • 6 compounds, including terpenoids, flavonoids and cannabolic acids found in cannabis are to be studied in synergy using various combinations.
  • Initial focus on cell culture inflammation models to understand amounts per compound required for highest efficacy.
  • Assessing “entourage effect”
cymra-breeding

Breeding

  • We have completed our first crosses in our greenhouse
  • SCU have imported a collection of plants from a gene bank in Germany known as IPK.
  • SCU will grow the lines out undertake tests of 48 varieties to establish cannabinoid content, terpene, flavinoid and acid composition.
  • This project will give Cymra a diverse set of genetics and understanding of those genetics to start targeted crossings
cymra-tissue-culture

Tissue Culture

  • The development of protocols to initiate, micro propagate and maintain cannabis in Tissue Culture
  • Establishment of callus and shoot regeneration (pre cursor work to gene editing/advanced breeding)
  • Establishment of transformation protocols (pre cursor work to gene editing/advanced breeding)
