GenScript Enhanced GenBrick Gene Synthesis Service
GenScript has launched an upgrade to its GenBrick Gene Synthesis platform, which gives researchers access to DNA sequences up to 200 kilobases long with 100 percent accuracy. GenScript said it has optimized the genome assembly process and enhanced its technology to better handle difficult sequences. It has also developed new technology to quickly and accurately create long DNA sequences in one step that are free of any mutations or negative clones.
The GenBrick service has been tested and used in synthetic biology projects such as the Synthetic 2.0 Yeast Genome (Sc2.0) project, where it synthesized the long arm of yeast chromosome VI.
