Jae-Gyu Kwagh has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20060156427
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are structure-based modelling methods for the preparation of acetohydroxy acid synthase (AHAS) variants, including those that exhibit selectively increased resistance to herbicides such as imidazoline herbicides and AHAS inhibiting herbicides. The invention encompasses isolated DNAs encoding such variants, vectors that include the DNAs, and methods for producing the variant polypeptides and herbicide resistant plants containing specific AHAS gene mutations. Methods for weed control in crops are also provided.
    Type: Application

  • Publication number: 20030138831
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods for sequencing a polymeric biomolecule and methods for structurally characterizing the same comprising using aptamers. In a preferred embodiment of this invention, these methods relate to using the single polymeric biomolecule. The invention also relates to a method for selecting aptamers useful for sequencing nucleic acids and aptamers generated by the method. The invention also provides aptamers that recognize and bind to AMP, dAMP, GMP, dGMP, CMP and dCMP.
