FuturaGene unit in collaboration deal with Oregon State University

FuturaGene unit in collaboration deal with Oregon State University

FuturaGene PLC (AIM: FGN)  said its unit CBD Technologies Ltd has entered into a collaborative agreement with Oregon State University under which it will provide professor Steven Strauss’ research group at the Forest Biotechnology department with a proprietary eucalyptus clone and a highly efficient eucalyptus transformation protocol.

The collaboration will facilitate rapid and efficient evaluation of genes for flowering control and other biosafety aspects of tree modification.

In addition CBD Tech plans to join the Tree Biosafety and Genomics Research Cooperative (TBGRC), an internationally recognised tree research consortium that has been working with forest industries on tree biotechnology for 15 years and which is directed by Professor Strauss.

Although eucalyptus is the most widely planted commercial plantation tree species for pulp and paper production in the world, this species is notoriously difficult to transform, FurturaGene said in a statement.

Thus, the supply of a proprietary clone and transformation method from the company to a public research institute, under appropriate material usage and confidentiality provisions, represents a significant contribution to accelerating public research and development in this species, it added.
