Dow Extends Genomatica Agreement

NEW YORK, May 3 (GenomeWeb News) - Genomatica last week said that it has extended a research agreement with the Dow Chemical Company that began in 2002, after successfully achieving "a series of scientific milestones."


Under the terms of the extended agreement, Dow has licensed Genomatica's SimPheny modeling and simulation technology, which it will use to improve recombinant protein expression from specially designed strains of Pseudomonas fluorescens. Scientists at Genomatica will collaborate with Dow researchers on the project.


Financial terms of the expanded agreement were not disclosed.
