Gen9's DNA Design Portal

Gen9 has launched a new web-based portal, based on Benchling's cloud-based research platform, for designing and assembling synthetic DNA constructs for use in applications such as antibody and protein engineering, pathway building, and genome construction.

Through the portal, users can design upload, and optimize their sequences for parameters such as design for syntesis, codon usage, and cloning strategy. The portal also provides a tool for editing sequence information and offers storage space for customers' sequences.
