Cooperation in the area of gene cloning and engineering of enzymes for biotechnology applications between BioVentures Institute Sp. z o.o. and the Department of Molecular Biotechnology, Faculty of Chemistry, University of Gdansk, has resulted in the generation of new “molecular scissors” for DNA cleavage. Results have been published in two high level international scientific journals (“Modified 'one amino acid-one codon' engineering of high GC content TaqII-coding gene from thermophilic Thermus aquaticus results in radical expression increase.” Microbial Cell Factories 2014, 13:7., and “Cofactor analogue-induced chemical reactivation of endonuclease activity in a DNA cleavage/methylation deficient TspGWI N473A variant in the NPPY motif.” Molecular Biology Reports 2014, DOI:10.1007/s11033-014-3085-x.).
