DNA2.0 Unlocks The Secrets Of Optimized Gene Design
News Oct 21, 2009
DNA2.0's research, which is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, has produced a set of design algorithms that allow the company to reliably offer expression yields up to 50 times greater than competing approaches. The paper, "Design Parameters to Control Synthetic Gene Expression in Escherichia coli " appears today in the publication, PLoS ONE.

Habitat loss, habitat fragmentation and the loss of genetic diversity are the main factors driving the extinction of many wild species, and the few eastern massasauga rattlesnakes remaining in Illinois have certainly suffered two of the three. A long-term study of these snakes reveals, however, that – despite their alarming decline in numbers – they have retained a surprising amount of genetic diversity.READ MORE
Researchers have discovered a navigational gene in glass catfish called the electromagnetic-perceptive gene, or EPG, that responds to certain magnetic waves. These findings have the potential to revolutionize treatments for humans and help those who suffer from tremors related to Parkinson’s and seizures associated with epilepsy.
