STEM™ is a Divergence proprietary protein-engineering platform
technology with broad utility in the development of unique traits for plant biotechnology. Applications
for STEM include pathogen resistance, drought and stress reduction, yield enhancement, and improved
nutrition. A team at Divergence is currently applying the STEM technology to nematode control and other
traits. Details of the technology and its application will be disclosed at a later date. Inquiries should
be directed to Divergence CEO Derek Rapp at email@example.com.
