A Stable Recombinant Peroxidase for Industrial Applications
LEAD INVENTORS Qing X. Li and Boting WenTECHNOLOGY The inventors identified a stable peroxidase enzyme not currently in use industrially. They engineered the protein, and altered its native composition, in order to create a highly efficient expression system scalable to large-scale manufacture. They have demonstrated that this altered prote...

Genetically Engineered Banana with Resistance to Banana Bunchy Top Virus
Researchers have developed transgenic banana of the cultivar Dwarf Brazilian that have been engineered to contain altered transgene sequences from the genome of Banana Bunchy Top Virus (BBTV). These transgenic banana plants are resistant to infection by BBTV and do not develop symptoms of banana bunchy top disease after exposure to BBTV. These plan...
