A Berlin-based university has developed a method to synthesize Omphalotin in fungal host organisms which allows the selective production of natural or modified Omphalotin that could be used in the protection of plants against pathogenic nematodes. The institute is interested in a cooperation in the framework of a license or a research cooperation agreement.
The university is looking for partners from the biotechnology or pharma industry, plant protection production or biological research for a license or a research cooperation agreement. In the framework of a license agreement partners like industry, SMEs or academic would be authorized to use the licensed synthesis route in the process of the further development of the technology. In a research cooperation agreement the partner could be industry, a SME or a university to further develop the technical aspects of the technology in a joint project. The aim should also be the upscaling of the developed technology. Full info
