IDT Offers Complete Synthetic Biology Capabilities
News Feb 25, 2011
Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT), offers a completely confidential custom gene synthesis service. By manufacturing any genes, including hard-to-clone sequences, IDT provides a cost-effective service, eliminating the outlay for construction, cloning, and sequencing.
In addition, each gene undergoes design, review and consultation, codon optimization, and sequence verification to provide guaranteed yields of 2 µg of purified DNA. As standard, all genes are constructed using Ultramers™, the highest fidelity next generation synthesis technology, and are all shipped in a plasmid cloning vector, ready for use.
With the ability to clone from 50 bases up to 5 kb, IDT can sequence almost any gene. Unless specified otherwise, all genes are delivered in the proprietary pIDTSmart vector, which has been engineered to remove common restriction sites and does not contain a promoter within the cloning region. With the choice of a kanamycin or ampicillin cassette, users can select their preferred resistance. IDT also has the ability to sub-clone into almost any custom supplied vector.
There are hundreds of thousands of structural variants (SVs) in the human genome that are hard to identify than single nucleotide variants. Researchers have used a full suite of genomic technologies to analyze the number of SVs in three individuals, and the results present as the most comprehensive catalog of SVS to date.READ MORE
