The piggyBacTM DNA transposon is the most efficient and safe technology for delivering DNA stably into the genome of animals and is being used in biomedical, agricultural and human therapeutic applications. Transposagen tested over 2 million variations of the piggyBacTM transposase enzyme and discovered versions of the enzyme that are more than 10 times more active than the version found in nature. The piggyBacTM technology is also a critical component of Footprint-FreeTM Gene Editing, one of the only commercially available methods to edit as little as a single nucleotide in the genome of nearly any organism. "The new 'super piggyBacTM vectors and PB-GoldTM kit, will allow researchers to perform stable transfection for the same cost and on the same timeline as transient transfection." said Jack Crawford, M.Sc., Transposagen's Director of Sales and Marketing.

The more recent patent covers all genetically modified rats that model lymphocyte proliferation, autoimmune disease or inflammatory disease, including all genetically modified rats with dysfunction in ma
