Sigma-Aldrich Life Sciences Acquires the License to CRISPR Patents from Broad Institute

Sigma-Aldrich announced that it has entered into a non-exclusive license agreement with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. The company's biological products and services business Sigma Life Science has licensed the CRISPR/Cas technology from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. As part of the agreement, Sigma-Aldrich is able to make, use and distribute the advanced gene editing tools for numerous research applications, including the generation of modified plant and animal models, custom cell line creation and for CRISPR/Cas arrayed and pooled genetic screening. This agreement enables Sigma-Aldrich to pair its lentiviral manufacturing core competency and genome editing expertise with CRISPR to create the next generation of screening tools: pre-designed or customizable individual lentiviral CRISPR clones and off-the-shelf or custom lentiviral CRISPR pools. Its first offering is a collection of clones targeting the human kinome, a significant group of genes that are commonly involved in cancer and development.
