GenScript Single-Stranded DNA Service

GenScript has launched a new single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) service. The firm's service will provide researchers access to its ssDNA for CRISPR-based gene insertion, which it believes will speed up development of gene therapy, cell therapy, and transgenic animal moels for cancer research and treatment. GenScript said that it uses a enzymatic approach to develop high purity DNA oligos up to 3000 nucleotides long in larger quantities, with an undetectable level of DNA contamination and minimal DNA base damage.
