Co-sponsored by Boeing and miniPCR, the winning high school student's project will be carried out by astronauts aboard ISS and is believed to be the first ever PCR in space.

The appeals court agreed with a previous ruling that found New England Biolabs failed to file its lawsuit in a timely manner.

The tool will simplify the design of cloning experiments using the Golden Gate Assembly method, the companies said. 

VWR will distribute a broader lineup of NEB's products, which will be made available through e-business and other sales channels.

Developed by New England Biolabs, the method uses pH-sensitive colorimetric dyes and is being utilized by the company to create assays for neglected tropical diseases.
