Developed by AVA co-founder, Andrew Eisen, MD, PhD, DRAP is the recombinant form of a unique protein found in Drosophila embryos.  DRAP posesses  two discrete properties – homology-dependent DNA strand exchange and a resolving, topoisomerase-like activity.  AVA has developed techniques to exploit these properties for the introduction of DNA into living systems.
