NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Two Blades Foundation today said it has completed a non-exclusive licensing agreement with KWS SAAT covering Two Blades' Transcription Activator Like effector code technology for genome engineering in certain crops.

The technology is for making specific changes in genomes based on novel sequence-specific DNA-binding proteins. TAL effector proteins can be designed to recognize almost any DNA sequence of interest and specific locations in the genome can be targeted for gene replacement and gene function modulation.
