ATUM Licenses Gene Design Software to Thermo Fisher

Post Time:2017-05-22 Source:IP Strategy News Author: Views:
ATUM — formerly DNA2.0, Inc. — said it signed a patent licensing agreement that gives Thermo Fisher Scientific access to the company’s novel gene design platform.

“Most people think visually, so seeing a graphic representation of a sequence is very helpful in the design process,” said Alan Villalobos, ATUM’s Vice President of Synthetic Biology and an inventor of the method.

“Gene Designer 2.0 represents sequence elements as icons, and features a drag and drop function that is crucial for avoiding errors that creep in during cut-and-paste operations, when one nucleotide missed can destroy the function of the entire construct.

“We are delighted that Thermo Fisher is incorporating these features into its Vector NTI Express Designer software.”
