CEO of Dow AgroSciences Announces Milestone in Wall Street Presentation

INDIANAPOLIS, and RICHMOND, Calif., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dow AgroSciences LLC and Sangamo BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGMO) today announced the successful completion of a key research milestone as part of their joint Research and Commercial License Agreement. This milestone represents the successful application of Sangamo's zinc finger DNA-binding protein nuclease (ZFN(TM)) technology in precision genome editing of a native plant gene with the aim of improving a valuable trait in canola, a crop central to Dow AgroSciences' business.

"It is my pleasure to announce we have achieved another significant milestone in the validation of zinc finger protein capabilities in plants," stated Jerome Peribere, the president and CEO of Dow AgroSciences, during his presentation at the Goldman Sachs Twelfth Annual Agricultural Biotech Forum. "We have demonstrated the robust utility and flexibility of the Sangamo technology in precision editing of a native plant gene, confirming the power of zinc finger proteins to accomplish specific and targeted modifications of the plant's own genetic sequence. The technology shows potential to enable the delivery of 'designer' crops into new and existing markets."

The milestone is the first demonstration of the precise modification of the DNA sequence of an existing gene in canola designed to generate an improved trait. This further demonstrates the ability of ZFNs to act at their intended target in crops of commercial importance.

"Sangamo's technology is revolutionizing scientists' ability to modify genes in cells. The power of the ZFP platform is being harnessed by Sangamo in therapeutics, our partner Sigma-
