Algentech announces it has solved a major technological bottleneck in applied plant genomics, by transforming the cotton mitochondrial genome with DNA sequences …
Cutting edge genome editing booster technologies, organelle transformation and synthetic biology tools for multi-sectorial applications.
Our focus is on the development of nuclease-free methods and design of booster systems to improve efficiency of nuclease-based genome editing technologies with unparalleled efficiency of gene targeting in eukaryotic cells via homologous recombination.
Our proprietary mini-chromosome amplification technology enables the transfer of entire biosynthetic pathways for high expression in plant chloroplasts: units are not integrated in the chloroplast genome, enabling high expression of large polycistrons.
Our unique transport systems enable shuttling nucleic acids into the mitochondria for further expression of genes of interest such as inducers of cytoplasmic male sterility for hybrid seed production.
