CAS data will accelerate herbicide discovery


MoA Tech and CAS have announced an agreement to embed chemical substance data from the CAS REGISTRY® directly into MoA Tech’s R&D workflow.

CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, has the largest and highest quality collection of such information in the world including references, chemical substances, proteins, reactions, physical and chemical properties, formulations, bioactivity data, and much more. 

MoA Tech’s scientists will have access to the most relevant, actionable chemical substance data within their daily workflow to quickly assess activity, enhancing productivity and expediting innovation.

Dr Shuji Hachisu, CTO at MoA Tech said: “We are partnering with CAS because our evaluation demonstrated that integrating their unique scientist-curated substance data collection with our novel in-vivo platforms greatly enhances our ability to deliver new solutions faster to help farmers while reducing the environmental impact of agriculture.”

Craig Stephens, Chief Customer Officer at CAS added: “We are confident this custom solution that incorporates high-quality CAS data at the point of need in MoA Tech’s screening process will dramatically reduce their investment per candidate.”
