DNA Fab Keeps Getting More Fab
July 26, 2017
(Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News) – Our DNA skills are lopsided: We are much better at dissecting DNA structure and organization than we are at synthesizing DNA. But our DNA skills are starting to become more balanced, now that we are benefitting from exponential decreases in the cost of oligonucleotide synthesis, dramatic improvements in technology, and the incorporation of novel paradigms. These developments have already culminated in the generation of synthetic viral, bacterial, and eukaryotic chromosomes.
