PRESS RELEASE - January 2023 VectorY and Annogen Announce Research Collaboration for the Development of CNS-cell Specific Promoters
Annogen to develop multiple CNS-cell specific promoters for VectorY targets.
PRESS RELEASE - December 2022 Annogen Announces Research Project with Pfizer to Test Non-coding Genetic Sequences
Annogen will functionally annotate tens of thousands of disease-related non-coding sequence variants with the goal of aiding drug discovery.
NEWS - November 2022 Annogen introduces AIM™ service
Annogen introduces a new service to identify gene insertions and asses their expression levels for >100,000 integrations in parallel. Using an adaptation of its proprietary SuRE™ barcoding strategy and previously established protocols, Annogen has now scaled a gene-insertion and expression mapping strategy to unprecedented numbers.
PRESS RELEASE - April 2022 Annogen signs another collaboration agreement with a Tier 1 agricultural firm to research non-coding regulatory DNA using SuRE™ screening technology.
Annogen, the Amsterdam based biotech company behind the SuRE™ technology for the functional annotation of the non-coding part of the genome, started a collaboration with a Tier 1 agri firm to test non-coding DNA fragments that are predicted to influence the expression of important crop traits. The results are expected to provide possibilities to intentionally upregulate or downregulate the expression of important genes in crops.
Novel approach could aid selective breeding in cattle
Researchers are developing a method of identifying specific letters in the DNA code that govern the development of key physical traits, such as productivity or disease tolerance, in livestock.
The study, involving Roslin researchers and their commercial partner Annogen, will focus on identifying sites in cattle DNA linked to important genes for livestock production and welfare.
NEWS – Annogen Featured in C2W
Many diseases are determined by differences in as yet undiscovered gene regulation. Thanks to plasmids and 'barcodes', the SuRE assay can map this relatively easily and extensively for the entire human genome.

Annogen signs collaboration agreement with Tier 1 agricultural firm to research non-coding DNA influencing gene expression using SuRE™ screening technology
Annogen, the Amsterdam based biotech company behind the SuRE™ technology for the functional annotation of the non-coding part of the genome, started a collaboration with a Tier 1 agricultural firm to identify non-coding DNA fragments in plants’ genomes that influence the expression of important crop traits. This will open new possibilities to intentionally upregulate or downregulate the expression of important genes in crops.
Annogen and KeyGene to collaborate in research on non-coding DNA influencing gene expression
Annogen and KeyGene the Wageningen based research company developing innovative technologies for crop improvement, are to collaborate in identifying non-coding DNA fragments in plants’ genomes that influence the expression of important crop traits. This will open new possibilities to intentionally upregulate or downregulate the expression of important genes in crops.
Annogen incorporated to commercialize SuRE technology for Functional Genome Annotation.
Sister company Gen-X BV has just signed an exclusive deal for use of SuRE for gene therapy with uniQure and consequently, Annogen was incorporated with exclusive rights to commercialize the technology outside the gene therapy field.
February 1, 2020 - Annogen appoints Victor Schut as Chief Business Officer
After supporting sister company Gen-X as CBO in 2019 and following the recent execution of its exclusive deal with Dutch gene therapy company uniQure he will now focus on setting up the spin-off business around the SuRE technology outside the gene therapy field.
