THE WOODLANDS, Texas--Lexicon Genetics last month filed a patent infringement suit in the US District Court for Delaware against Deltagen. Lexicon has alleged that Deltagen is willfully infringing the claims of a patent that covers methods of engineering the animal genome using isogenic DNA technology. Lexicon said the technology is of critical importance for the efficient commercial-scale production of knockout mice using gene targeting by homologous recombination.
