Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard Key Developments

SAGE Labs Licenses CRISPR/Cas9 Technology from the Broad Institute

SAGE Labs Inc. announced that they have licensed CRISPR/Cas9 technology from the Broad Institute. The license enables SAGE Labs to use the CRISPR/Cas9 system to engineer cell and animal models for their clients as well as distribute validated CRISPR reagents. This is the second license obtained by SAGE Labs around CRISPR/Cas9 technology. The Broad Institute was recently issued the first patent for CRISPR/Cas9 technology based on the research of Feng Zhang, PhD, published in Science in January of 2013. CRISPR/Cas9 technology represents the latest advancement in nuclease-based gene editing tools, which have revolutionized genetic engineering by markedly reducing development times and enabling genetic engineering in potentially any species.

Horizon Discovery Enters into Non-Exclusive License Agreement with Broad Institute

Horizon Discovery™ Group plc announced it has entered into a non-exclusive license agreement with the Broad Institute to access intellectual property related to the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing system. Under the terms of the agreement, Horizon has rights to use the technology commercially for applications including development of research tools and reagents, and provision of services that utilize CRISPR, for example as part of Horizon's GENASSIST™ offering.
