Reach the full potential of genome editing
AlgenScribe is a biotechnology company developing a genome editing platform to improve human health.
Genome editing has the potential to revolutionize the way we cure severe diseases.
Algenscribe is a Biotechnology company developing a genome editing platform to improve human health.
Our strategy is to apply a unique toolbox for precise genome editing.
Our mission is to translate our technologies into therapeutics.
The foundation of our technologies is based on more than 10 years of development performed by Algentech in plant cell models.
Our platform possesses unique abilities to increase the efficiency of homologous recombination and addresses some limitations related to nuclease-based genome editing.
DNA is cut in a targeted site by molecular scissors (nucleases).
The cell repairs this break with 2 processes:
Non-homologous End Joining (NHEJ) or Homology-Directed Repair (HDR).
NHEJ is naturally more efficient than HDR
Module 1: Amplified donor DNA
guided to the insertion site
Gene repair by HDR
Module 2: Enzyme to foster HDR

Dr Isabelle Malcuit
Scientific co Founder
Dr Malcuit holds a PhD in plant virology received in 1998 from the department of genetics, Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Dr Malcuit has extensive experience in genetics and biotechnology. Prior to founding Algentech, she held the position of senior research associate at the Sainsbury Laboratory (Norwich, UK), in charge of the programme for functional genomics using VIGS (Virus-Induced Gene Silencing). She is co-inventor on 7 patent families owned by Algentech.
Dr Alexander Sorokin
Scientific co Founder
Dr Sorokin has more than 20 years’ experience in genetics, agronomy and biotechnology. He obtained his PhD in plant genetics obtained in 1991 from the school of Agronomy in Minsk for his work on wheat and triticale genetics. Prior to founding Algentech he held the position of senior research associate at the Sainsbury Laboratory (Norwich, UK), in charge of technology development and consultant at Plant Bioscience Ltd (Norwich, UK). He is co-inventor on 7 patent families owned by Algentech.
