Arzeda + Zymergen = novel pathway/enzyme design & high-throughput build-test for producing non-natural chemicals and materials. The next generation of synthetic biology put to work for metabolic engineering.

I'm lovin' my new colorful screening strategy!  Which E. coli colonies contain the correctly assembled DNA, do you think?   #lifeiscolorful    #DNA   #syntheticbiology

Our recently published paper "ex vivo DNA assembly" is currently featured on the Frontiers homepage!

I'm very happy to share our most recent publication titled "ex vivo DNA assembly." We describe our effort to optimize the assembly of DNA using cellular lysates derived from a few microorganisms and show that ex vivo DNA assembly is organism-specific. In addition, we demonstrate that a significant fraction of assembly events actually occur inside E. coli post-transformation (i.e., in vivo assembly). This is also true for in vitro isothermal (Gibson) assembly or any homology-based method.

"The BIOFAB parts that are now available through Gene Designer are part of a pilot collection of transcription and translation controllers-and also include a first set of engineered terminators."
