Precision BioSciences, Inc. Key Developments

Danziger Innovations Ltd. and Precision BioSciences, Inc. Announce Successful Genome Modification Collaboration in Ornamental Plants

Danziger Innovations Ltd. and Precision BioSciences, Inc. announced that they have successfully generated site-specific genome modifications in petunia and jasmine tobacco by combining Precision's Directed Nuclease Editor (DNE) gene editing technology with Danziger's MemoGene gene delivery system. This successful research effort was aimed at genetic control of flower color but researchers at Precision and Danziger believe that the approach can be used more broadly to address genome engineering challenges in plants that are recalcitrant to existing transformation methods without requiring the insertion of foreign DNA into the plant genome.

Nova Synthetix and Precision BioSciences, Inc. Announce Collaboration to Develop Non-GM, Ricin-Free Castor with Customizable Oil Content

Nova Synthetix and Precision BioSciences, Inc. announced that they have initiated a joint research effort to generate non-GM, ricin-free castor plants using Precision's Directed Nuclease Editor (DNE) technology in combination with Nova Synthetix's proprietary plant transformation system. Scientists at Nova Synthetix and Precision also plan to utilize their joint capabilities to generate improved castor variants capable of producing user defined oil profiles for industrial, biofuel, and feed-directed applications. The companies believe that the successful development of this multi-year research effort will address a significant agricultural need and result in a castor plant that is safer and has far greater market utility.

Precision BioSciences and Agrivida Announce Collaborative Trait Development Agreement

Precision BioSciences and Agrivida revealed that they have entered into a trait development collaboration based on precise gene modifications made possible by Precision's Directed Nuclease Editor Technology. The collaboration recently delivered the first modified genes that are the subject of Agrivida commercialization efforts in the area of animal nutrition.
