About Us


Since 2017,TechAccel and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center have partnered to advance a novel and proprietary pesticidal RNAi technology with broad pesticidal application. 

In January 2019, TechAccel founded the biopesticide startup RNAissance Ag with exclusive worldwide license to the technology.

RNAi Basics

RNAi pesticide technology is a safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to chemical pesticides. RNAi pesticides are designed to be highly specific to the target pest, are not toxic to other organisms and are biodegradable. Further, as many pests have become resistant to chemical pesticides, RNAi biopesticides employ a different mode of action and can be highly effective. The biopesticide market is growing and estimated to reach $10B worldwide by 2025.


RNAissance Ag has RNA-manufacturing infrastructure, with industrial fermenters and a formulation laboratory at its St. Louis office.
