Cellectis Plant Sciences, Inc. Signs License Agreement with the University of Minnesota

Cellectis plant sciences Inc. has announced that it has signed an exclusive license agreement with the University of Minnesota that grants Cellectis the worldwide rights to use the technology covered by the patent rights of the family WO/2014/144155 entitled "Engineering Plant Genomes Using CRISPR/Cas Systems". In addition to meganucleases and TALEN (TradeMark) technology, this approach for targeted modification of plant genomes was developed by the laboratory of Professor Dan Voytas in the University of Minnesota. The technology has demonstrated results in plant genome engineering and adds to Cellectis plant sciences Inc. strong intellectual property rights in the gene editing field, in addition to meganuclease and TALENTM technologies. Similarly to meganucleases, Zinc Fingers and TALEN (TradeMark), CRISPR technology enables a number of useful tools to target specific loci in a genome and/or modulate the expression of genes. The technology is based on novel sequence-specific nucleases that can be cheaply engineered to recognize any gene of interest in a genome. Application in plants, similarly to the other gene editing technologies, could enable the development of valuable crops.
