Codon, Agrivida collaborate to develop enzyme-engineered corn

Codon Devices Inc. and Agrivida Inc. have signed an agreement to utilize Codon's trademarked BioLogic engineering platform to develop enzymes optimized for use in Agrivida's corn varieties engineered for ethanol production. Central to Agrivida's ethanol-optimized corn technology are engineered enzymes that are incorporated into the corn plants themselves for cellulosic ethanol production. Codon's engineering platform speeds up the process of developing enzymes in a typically one- to two-year project to a six- to nine-month time frame.
