The company will integrate the oligonucleotide manufacturer with two of its existing sections to form a new Nucleic Acid Chemistry business unit.

The acquisition of GeneWorks' oligo business widens IDT's reach in the Asia-Pacific region, the company said.

Agilent filed a lawsuit against Twist nearly a year ago, alleging that Twist Cofounder and CEO Emily LeProust had stolen DNA oligonucleotide synthesis technology. 

Scientists led by Eric Kmiec showed that their strategy of point mutation editing with single-stranded DNA oligos and double-strand breaks works with CRISPR/Cas9. 

Single nucleus sequencing analysis of triple-negative breast tumors indicated that copy number changes occur in bursts early in tumor evolution.

In its court filing, the company said Twist Founder and CEO Emily LeProust stole its technology and breached her confidentiality agreements.

The new 8,000-square-foot building will support oligonucleotide manufacturing for molecular biology applications such as qPCR, next-generation sequencing, and synthetic biology.

The company'sSan Diegomanufacturing site received ISO 14001:2004 certification, making both of its facilities ISO 14001-certified. 

Integrated DNA Technologies has released xGen universal blocking oligos, a line of oligonucleotides that prevent cross-hybridization between adapter sequences or hybridization of adapters to capture probes.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – TriLink BioTechnologies announced today a licensing deal with QuantiBact to offer twisted intercalating nucleic acid, or TINA, modified oligos.
