LANSING, Mich., May 12, 2009 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCBB:KBLB) announce that the scientific team is preparing to significantly ramp up the number of genetic insertions performed in the month of May. The team anticipates that the rate of DNA construct insertions in May will be double that which has been performed to date.
“We are now entering the next phase in which the team is reallocating recourses to genetic insertion,” said CEO Kim Thompson.
“This is directly related to our recent development of new DNA constructs that are specifically targeted for the production of new fusion silk proteins. We intend to dramatically ramp up the number of insertions performed in order to gain the maximum benefit from the new insertion packets.”
Every targeted DNA packet insertion has the potential to create a new recombinant fiber with commercial applications.
Kraig is working to develop and commercialize high performance polymers using spider silk gene sequences. The company plans to tap into the $92 billion market for high performance and technical fibers. In 2007 Kraig Biocraft Laboratories signed an intellectual property and collaborative research agreement with the University of Notre Dame. Since that time the Company has been a proud sponsor of scientific research and development within the university.
