Providing a Rapid and Reliable Method of Gene Cloning
News Dec 02, 2013
Michel Cannieux, PhD, MBA, Director of Product Commercialization, Synthetic Biology at IDT will discuss a novel, rapid and reliable method to build and clone genes of interest at a fraction of the cost of full gene synthesis.
The talk, entitled “Rapid and Reliable Gene Construction with gBlocks™ Gene Fragments and Gibson Assembly™ Method” will take place at 12.00 on December 11. As double stranded, sequence verified DNA blocks up to 750 base pairs, gBlocks Gene Fragments have high sequence fidelity. As a result, they are ideal for use in a broad range of biological applications. This presentation will review the assembly of gene fragments using the Gibson Assembly Method and discuss design, protocols and applications.
Michel Cannieux holds a PhD in Plant Molecular Biology and has over 15 years’ experience in the life science industry, developing and supporting tools and solutions for functional analysis, including RNAi and synthetic biology.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.

Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
