Taconic Biosciences Licenses Easi-CRISPR Technology from the University of Nebraska
Easi- CRISPR was developed in the laboratories of Drs. Masato Ohtsuka (Tokai University in Japan), and Channabasavaiah Gurumurthy (University of Nebraska). The terms of the agreement include a world-wide, non-exclusive license to the technology, allowing Taconic rights to generate and sell rodent models generated via Easi-CRISPR. When compared to traditional CRISPR, Easi-CRISPR represents a significant advantage, allowing researchers to perform whole genetic insertions versus being limited to point mutations and constitutive knockouts.
"Easi-CRISPR is the next progression of the revolutionary CRISPR/Cas technology. Combining the speed of CRISPR with larger genetic insertions allows complex projects typically requiring homologous recombination techniques to reduce project timelines by six months. In an industry where time is a precious resource, access to this technology underscores Taconic's commitment to providing our customers with the best solutions," shared John Couse, vice president of scientific services of Taconic Biosciences.
Channabasavaiah Gurumurthy commented, "we are pleased to see the research community quickly adopting Easi-CRISPR. Licensing of Easi-CRISPR by Taconic, a globally recognized leader of animal model generation, should help scientists rapidly generate innovative models to benefit scientific research".
