gene editing

Using a combination of multiplex automated genome engineering (MAGE) and conjugative assembly genome engineering (CAGE), a research team has generated bacterial strains in which one stop codon has been replaced with another.

The research partners will use induced pluripotent stem cells and zinc-finger nuclease editing tools to study a genetic desert region linked to coronary artery disease.

The TAL Effector technology allows for the design of proteins that bind to any specified sequence of DNA — an approach that promises precise functional control over genetic circuitry.

Cellectis is targeting global distribution of its Talen Access service and Wako will allow the firm to enter the Japanese market "effectively."

The two parties will collaborate on creating a gene editing process in inducible human pluripotent stem cells.

The grants come from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the US Department of the Treasury, the National Institutes of Health, and the state of North Carolina.

The two patents deal with DNA vectors that can be used in gene mapping and site-directed gene insertion, and are related to a different pair of patents already under reexamination at the USPTO.
