Asterion has entered into a collaborative research contract with the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (“QAAFI”) at the University of Queensland consisting of an eighteen month, ‘proof-of-concept’ clonal propagation research program. 

The aim will be to expedite clonal propagation of elite selections of cannabis plants to enable high volume, uniform plant cultivation that will be required to serve the rapidly growing demand for cannabis-based medicines for a wide and expanding variety of ailments. The outcome will develop proof of concept for in vitro propagation of the selected cultivars.  

The research will identify and establish a proprietary, genetically stable, repeatable, high yield tissue propagation procedure for a number of cannabis strains.  The use of tissue culture will provide a pathogen-free source of stable genetics, eliminating the need for mothers and manual cloning procedures.  The intellectual property generated through the research will be wholly owned by Asterion, creating a suite of technologies and procedures absolutely necessary for large scale cannabis facilities.
