New Breeding Techniques Platform

Welcome to this information website on new breeding techniques for plants, an initiative of the New Breeding Techniques (NBT) Platform. This website is intended to provide easy access to information on new methods for plant breeding, the NBT Platform, and our products.

The activities of the NBT Platform including website updates ceased on 1.1.2019.

The New Breeding Techniques (NBT) Platform is a coalition of SMEs, large industry and prominent academic and research institutes, which strives to achieve regulatory clarity on whether or not New Breeding Techniques (‘NBTs’) are to be defined as leading to a genetically modified organism (‘GMO’).
