The field of synthetic biology has grown exponentially with the sequencing of multiple genomes, decreases in DNA synthesis costs, advances in bioinformatics and DNA design programs, and expansion of the synthetic biologist’s toolbox to include a vast array of modular parts for construction of custom systems. The design-build-test-learn cycle, previously used mostly in engineering fields, has become a feasible and readily applied approach to rapidly create new biological systems.
It is critical for DNA and RNA building blocks utilized in synthetic constructs be of high fidelity to allow confident interpretation of results for a tested design. Arbor Biosciences offers high fidelity sgRNA and long single-stranded DNA for CRISPR-based genome editing and regulation through our myCRISPR product line. Additionally, testing new protein and enzyme designs in living organisms can be laborious. With the myTXTL cell-free transcription-translation system from Arbor Biosciences, expression can be carried out in as little as a few hours and streamlined to analyzing hundreds to thousands of designs simultaneously with automated liquid handlers. We also provide a repository of error-free plasmids for rapid prototyping of gene circuits in the myTXTL system.
At Arbor Biosciences, we thrive on being able to bring diverse applications and creative customer ideas to fruition. Synthetic biology involves the intersection of multiple fields and our scientists have a diverse background in biology, chemistry and engineering to help execute innovative designs for unique applications. We provide high-quality, affordable products for custom projects to researchers around the world and our team of experienced scientists are readily available to assist with designing and optimizing your custom synthetic biology project.
