CTI Genetics is devoted to transforming the cannabis industry through applied biotechnology. Our mission is to maximize the efficiency of cannabis producers.
Relentless in our pursuit of perfection, we plan to uncover the hidden truths within Cannabis while improving yield, quality, and consistency. Leading the CTI genetics team is Chief Science Officer Eric J. Mathur, whose exemplary industrial biotechnology career includes the successful improvement of multiple plants through molecular breeding. His work on the rubber-producing desert shrub, Guayule [pronounced why-yoo-lee], resulted in an estimated 10x improvement in yield with dramatically increased crop uniformity and was publicized by Wired magazine.
Mathur is joined by Dr. Robert J. Schmidt, Vice President of Plant Sciences. Dr. Schmidt is an Emeritus Professor at the University of California, San Diego and an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Dr. Schmidt is an expert in plant genetics and a leader in the field of crop improvement and plant domestication. Together, Mathur and Schmidt have 70 years of combined agricultural breeding and biotechnology expertise.
