Just as chemical engineering transformed 20th century manufacturing with cutting-edge building blocks that led to important new materials such as nylon and plastic, engineered DNA will provide the next-generation building blocks needed for environmentally responsible, efficient manufacturing in the 21st century. High-accuracy constructs in the multi-kilobase range will enable scientists in biology and other industrial fields to study the behavior of full genes, metabolic pathways, distant genetic elements, genomes, and other aspects of DNA that cannot currently be interrogated with shorter synthetic DNA fragments.
"With GeneByte Plus DNA constructs, we are now producing and shipping clonal, sequence-perfect constructs up to 10 Kb in length from our facility in
Gen9 is the first next-generation gene synthesis company producing synthetic DNA constructs used in numerous applications, including antibody, peptide, and enzyme engineering; gene and pathway construction; and genome assembly. In addition to GeneByte Plus, Gen9 is currently manufacturing and shipping double-stranded GeneBit™ and GeneByte™ DNA constructs, or gene fragments from 500 to 3,000 base pairs long. The company's innovative BioFab® platform has the capacity to generate tens of thousands of synthetic constructs per year in just a few square feet of laboratory space. All of Gen9's products are sequence verified and sent in clonal form, either in a vector or as linear DNA.
