Faster, Cheaper, Better: A New Way to Synthesize DNA

The process of DNA synthesis, which has remained virtually unchanged for more than 40 years, can be slow and unreliable. Now in what could address a critical bottleneck in biology research, Sebastian Palluk and Daniel Arlow, grad students working with Jay Keasling at the Joint BioEnergy Institute, have pioneered a new way to synthesize DNA sequences through a creative use of enzymes that promises to be faster, cheaper, and more accurate. Their paper was published in Nature Biotechnology. More>
