Monsanto and researchers celebrate first anniversary of sharing rice genome sequence data

that biotechnology meets the agricultural needs of the world's poor. "By sharing fundamental data about the rice genome, we hope to encourage additional research and collaborations that will lead to a wide variety of discoveries to enhance food security and nutritional needs throughout the developing world," said Robb Fraley, Chief Technology Officer of Monsanto.

Monsantos sharing of the rice genome sequence data reflects the New Monsanto Pledge and its commitment to sharing of knowledge and technology with public institutions to benefit people and the environment, particularly in the developing world. The New Monsanto Pledge is a commitment to people around the world to develop and sell products in a safe and socially responsible manner. Other specific commitments include dialogue with interested parties; transparency with information and regulation; respect for religious, cultural and ethical concerns; and benefits for growers and the environment.

In June, the company shared important genetic information with the United Soybean Board to help accelerate the boards goal of developing a soybean with improved oils and protein for U.S. producers, and to provide consumers with healthier soy products in the future. Last year Monsanto also donated a Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) genetic marker to the Better Bean Initiative to help further the Better Bean Initiatives goal of developing soybean lower in saturated fats.
