lusive rights to traits resulting from the collaboration. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"This is our first corporate collaboration, and we are delighted that it is with DuPont, a company that has attained leadership in its global businesses by emphasizing the application of technology to achieve better solutions," said Michael Martino, Arzeda's CEO.

Added David Baker, one of Arzeda's founders and professor of biochemistry at the University of Washington, "I'm very pleased and excited to see technology developed in my lab applied to the pressing global problem of agricultural productivity."

Arzeda's groundbreaking technology integrates the power of chemical catalysis, the high selectivity of biological macromolecules, and the speed of computational design to rapidly design and screen novel enzymes that don't exist in nature and are currently inaccessible using traditional enzyme engineering approaches. Arzeda was founded by David Baker and three senior members of his lab to commercialize and further develop its computational enzyme design technology. Arzeda's team includes the inventors of the platform and brings more than 20 years of combined experience in the field of computational and experimental protein engineering.
