Dow AgroSciences LLC, and Iowa State University have entered into a research agreement to study how Exzact Precision Technology can help improve the development of renewable bioproducts in microalgae.

Dow AgroSciences' Exzact Precision Technology offers a way to target genome modification. The technology is able to specifically and efficiently add, edit, or delete genes at targeted locations in plant genomes, making it a leading tool for precise engineering of multi-gene stacks, editing native gene sequences and targeted gene disruption in crops. This new research will extend those functionalities into algal systems.
