NovoClade is developing state-of-the-art SMART™ solutions for chemical-free insect control. Their first product is for the control of fruit fly spotted wing drosophila, which has been causing wide scale damage to soft fruits. NovoClade’s products are genome-edited SMART™ eggs that will be put into areas infested with undesirable insects, from which only sterile males will emerge, seek out wild females for mating resulting in inviable offspring and successive control of insect populations.

This company will be presenting on Day 3 of DeepTechU 2022. View schedule >>
