DNA Script in a nutshell
DNA Script is a leading company in manufacturing de novo synthetic nucleic acids using an enzymatic technology. The company aims at accelerating innovation in life science and technology through rapid, affordable, and high-quality DNA synthesis. DNA Script's approach leverages nature's billions of years of evolution in synthesizing DNA to set a new standard for how nucleic acids are made and accelerate the adoption of synthetic biology across diverse disciplines such as biopharma, sustainable chemistry and data storage.
To date, DNA Script has raised over 16 M€ of financing, mostly through equity funding brought by prestigious players such as Illumina Ventures, Merck Ventures, Sofinnova Partners, Kurma Partners and Idinvest. The company partners with leading institutions, in particular Institut Pasteur.
Position open at DNA Script
DNA Script's technology has been validated to synthesize short fragments of DNA. This synthesis involves about 20 critical parameters, such as temperature or concentrations of reagents in solution. To reach the optimum set as fast as possible, we need to put into effect some design of experiment, to improve the readability of our data and lower the number of required tests. You will oversee implementation of a new statistical software and operate it to improve synthesis performance.
- Gather and process analyzed results
- Adapt the software to our set of data and protocols
- Extract optimized parameters and experiments
- Interface between analytic and process teams
