iBio (IBIO +2.1%) receives notices of intention to grant for two European patent applications pertaining to novel protein expression technologies.
Patent app No. 05723389.2 entitled "Systems and Methods for Clonal Expression in Plants" includes claims to a system for generating transgenic hairy root cells containing a viral vector expressing a gene of interest.
Patent app No. 10150887.7 entitled "System for Expression of Genes in Plants" includes claims to methods for expressing one or more polynucleotides of interest using a set of plant viral vectors that function together.
Both patent apps are based on inventions made at the Fraunhofer USA Center of Molecular Biotechnology.
