$CLLS Talk about excitement ! One of our biotech wunderkind has
taken the lead in the race to improve the cold storage performance
of sliced potatoes !
Cellectis is not only trying to fix human genes, they now have the genes of innocent plants in their crosshairs. First potatoes. Then they’ll go after soybeans, corn, and wheat. It appears that no grain will be safe.
They were just approved to start planting a genetically modified
potato, sort of like a Phase Trial for vegetables. Now don’t start to giggle and snort. You may not care if your spuds don’t do well in the fridge, but folks like McDonalds, Wendy’s, and Burger King will pay close attention.
Cellectis just renamed their plant division. Why, I ask myself.
In their road shows the CEO keeps trying to get a word in at the end about their plant division, but it seems the listeners are far more interested in human cancer therapy. Look, I get it…saving people from mortal cancer could be a hot thing. But a better french fry
could a have big impact on our society, too.
Coming soon to a fast food chain near you. Hoping for a plump spinoff of the Cellectis plant sciences division.
