Description IP Pragmatics (London) gave us a marketing report of possible pathways to commercialise this technology. Report indicates that there are significant opportunities, however the report revealed that a similar patent had previously been filed by a rival organisation. This means that the patent filed for this work by ISIS, University of Oxford is unlikely to proceed.
Exploitation Route Unlikely due to patent application withdrawal by ISIS, University of Oxford. This was done because a similar patent had previously been filed by another organisation.
Sectors Agriculture, Food and Drink,Healthcare
