Yield10 Bioscience is a publicly traded, agriculture bioscience company headquartered in Woburn, Massachusetts. It focuses on the development of technologies to produce step-change improvements in crop yield for food and feed crops. It aims to do this by improving fundamental elements of plant metabolism through enhanced photosynthetic efficiency and directed carbon utilization.
Originally known as Metabolix, the company was founded in 1992 and was focused on engineering microbes to make proprietary bioplastics and bio-based chemicals. The company's crop science research program was launched in 2002 with the intent to harness the renewable nature of plants to produce renewable bioplastics, chemicals, and bioenergy from agricultural crops. The company was renamed Yield10 Biosciences in 2015 to focus on its current are of expertise.
Yield10's proprietary technologies such as its 'Smart Carbon Grid for Crops' and 'T3' platforms are used to book the carbon dioxide fixation efficiency through photosynthesis as well as its direction to and conversion into plant matter. The company is advancing this and several other yield traits it has developed in key commercial crops such as canola, soybean, rice, wheat, and corn.
