Back in June - only 4 months ago - DNA Script announced two achievements that had never before been reported: the successful enzymatic synthesis of a 50-nucleotide DNA strand and the first PCR using enzymatically synthesized primers. Since then, tremendous progress has been achieved, and enzymatic DNA synthesis is now at parity with traditional chemical technology
— and poised to quickly surpass the gold standard in speed, efficacy and length.
The purpose of this series of blog posts is to demonstrate the capabilities of DNA Script's technology and how this technology will serve as a foundation for easily programmable biology. Most of the results shown here have been presented by our CEO, Thomas Ybert at SynBioBeta 2018. This series will be divided into 3 separate parts, published over the next 2 weeks:
- Enzymatic DNA synthesis performance
- Applications: DNA data storage & Epigenetics
- The path to an easily programmable biology
