DNAStar, Wageningen University Broaden Licensing Agreement

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – DNAStar said today that the Wageningen University and Research Centre in the Netherlands has inked a broad site-license agreement for DNAStar's Lasergene sequence-analysis software.

Under the terms of the license, all researchers in the Department of Agrotechnology and Food Sciences will have unlimited use of the software for their sequence-analysis projects.

The site license will include the latest version of Lasergene, which provides users with automated virtual MultiSite Gateway cloning capabilities and other features, Madison, Wis.-based DNAStar said.

In September 2008, Wageningen University licensed Lasergene for use among scientists at the Department of Plant Science and at Plant Research International, both part of the university.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
