Molecular Assemblies

Molecular Assemblies will combine its chemistries with Codexis' enzyme improvement platform in order to create a process for the enzymatic synthesis of DNA.

The San Diego-based DNA synthesis firm this week announced $12.2 million in Series A funding, but has plans to expand the round.

The firm will use the funding to advance its enzymatic DNA synthesis technology, which has applications in life sciences, information storage, synthetic biology, and electronics.

In a proof-of-concept study published in Nature Biotechnology this week, the team demonstrated that it could enzymatically synthesize 10-mer oligonucleotides.

The technology is designed to produce long, high-fidelity sequences of DNA enzymatically, rather than chemically.

The Lancet has made changes to its peer-review process in response to its recent retraction of a COVID-19-related paper, Science reports.

The New York Times reports that a series of emails show how Department of Health and Human Services officials sought to silence the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A new initiative aims to move Australia's genome sequencing labs onto one system, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

In PLOS this week: recessive mutation tied to early-onset dilated cardiomyopathy, epigenetic analysis of lung adenocarcinoma, and more.
