Licensing and Collaborations
Dyadic is interested in strategic partnerships with industry leaders in various sectors including animal health and nutrition, biofuels, chemicals and fibers, food products, diagnostics, health and beauty aids, and pharmaceuticals.
Dyadic works with its partners to discover new biomaterials, develop new products, lower costs and reduce waste, improve yields, enhance the quality of end products, enhance the intellectual property position of its partners’ gene discoveries and products, and manufacture biological products.
The business relationship with Dyadic can cover all aspects of the process from gene and protein discovery to commercial scale manufacturing for a partner, or just a specific portion of the R&D and commercialization process.
Dyadic is very flexible in structuring its collaborations to suit the needs of its partner which may include the following:
- Funded R&D with an accompanying license for commercial rights to resulting products (with or without Dyadic manufacturing products for the partner)
- Joint ventures in defined fields for discovering, developing, manufacturing and commercializing products emanating from the application of Dyadic’s genomics technology
Dyadic is developing functional biomolecule libraries for other companies to access – under suitable business arrangements – to screen for products of commercial value. When desired by a business partner, Dyadic will screen soil samples and other sources for novel eukaryotic genes and proteins of commercial value.
Dyadic is also interested in collaboration with independent researchers, as well as scientists at research institutions, universities and commercial establishments where a research partnership is of mutual benefit.
