Dow/Sangamo achieve research milestones

Dow AgroSciences and US genomics company Sangamo BioSciences (Richmond, California) have completed research milestones in their collaboration on genetically modified crop technology. The partners have used Sangamo’s zinc finger DNA-binding protein technology to introduce a herbicide tolerance gene into a specified location on the maize genome. They have also used the technology to control the expression of a native canola gene. The research shows that the technology can accelerate the process of trait stacking, thereby shortening the process of developing GM crops with new traits, Dow points out. Dow and Sangamo entered into a three-year research deal in 2005 ( Agrow No 482, p 4).
