Synbio Technologies > Frequently Asked Questions
The “GPS” represents “Genotype”, “Phenotype” and “Synotype”. Synbio Technologies’ Synotype platform was conceived, designed and implemented with synthetic biology technology to create:
We coined “Synotype” while we established the company. “Synotype” represents a novel approach to phenotype by unnatured DNA. Synbio Technologies’ Synotype platform was conceived, designed and implemented with synthetic biology technology to produce:
The Synotype approach platform utilizes the innovative Syno® 1.0-Syno® 3.0 DNA synthetic platforms to provide a wide range of one-stop solutions for any synthetic DNA projects.
Synbio Technologies’ genotype platform is a data mining and DNA design platform, concentrating on:
Our improving genotype platform has been successfully utilized by synthetic biology, bio-pharmaceutical and biofuel industries.
The aim of Phenotype platform is to make every “idea” of DNA into reality. The interaction between a host cell (Genotype) and a synthesized DNA (Synotype) often represent the significance of a designed phenotype. Synbio Technologies’ phenotype platform is built on our scientific knowledge and expertise that is focusing on a systematic and cost-effective DNA molecule’s performance evaluation in a determined cell system. Depending on our scientific knowledge and expertise, we have made great contribution to various fields.
Synbio Tech’s scientific capabilities encompass areas such as DNA engineering, DNA synthesis, genome synthesis, pathway synthesis, synthetic biology, pharmacogenomics, microbiology, translational biology and the applications of synthetic biology. Synbio Technologies’ team has a proven track record regarding translating scientific breakthroughs into cost effective biological solution.
Gene synthesis is a method used to produce synthetic genes which can be inserted into DNA sequences. It is based on solid-phase DNA synthesis, as opposed to molecular cloning or PCR cloning. Therefore, it is possible to make a completely synthetic double-stranded DNA molecule with no apparent limits on either nucleotide sequence or size.
Gene synthesis differs from traditional molecular cloning and PCR cloning in several ways. In traditional molecular cloning, recombinant DNA molecules are assembled and replicated within host organisms. However, not every gene has high-efficiency expression in these systems, meaning that molecular cloning may not be the best option for these genes. Instead, through gene synthesis, it is possible to avoid this problem by creating a new system with high-efficiency expression of the target gene.
Please see the “Artificial Gene Synthesis and Traditional Molecular Cloning” page for further information about traditional molecular cloning and gene synthesis.
Synbio Technologies is a professional gene synthesis company that is becoming the leader of the world biosynthesis industry. Our team consists of experts in microbiology, biochemistry, and many other related sciences, all equipped with our advanced Syno®1.0-3.0 gene synthesis platform to assure high quality gene synthesis services. Synbio Technologies guarantees a turnaround time within 2-3 weeks after order submission, and being subcloned into any vector the clients choose.
Synbio Technologies’ standard gene synthesis services can synthesize gene sequences up to 10 kb upon your request. For DNA longer than 10 kb, please contact our project manager for a quote.
Yes. The Syno®2.0 platform enables us to synthesize difficult sequences. Our professional scientific team has years of experience on gene synthesis. They have successfully synthesized thousands of difficult sequences with high GC content, repeats, etc.
Note: the delivery time only applies for non-complex sequences.
We can optimize gene sequences upon request. Your sequence will be optimized with our advanced bioinformatics platform and reviewed carefully by our professional experts.
Normally, different organisms have different codon usage preferences. For example, the preferred codons used in a mouse gene might be rare in bacteria. This can cause problems when you try to express human genes in E. coli. By using our synthetic genes with codon optimization, both the protein expression success rate and the protein expression level are dramatically increased.
pUC57-Amp or pUC57-Kan are the default vectors. If you want your synthetic gene cloned into your own vector, please provide the vector and send us the detailed vector information.
At Synbio Technologies, we have a very strict QC procedure that covers each step of your project. Every synthesized DNA product is confirmed by DNA sequencing before delivery. A COA (certificate of analysis) file and a sequence map will be delivered with the construct.
Program design, preparation of target gene & vector, transformation of target gene into vector, screening and identification of recombinant vectors.
Delivery: Both lyophilized plasmid DNA(2~5 µg) and bacteria solution of your insert in your chosen vector.
Data: Sequence chromatograms and QC data
You can get a quote using our online request submission form. Or you can email all the sequences and requirements directly to: email@example.com
Synbio Technologies’ project managers will contact you within one business day after we get your request.
Please contact the Synbio Technologies support team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will be glad to help you.
Please contact the Synbio Technologies support team (email@example.com) for assistance.
You can use our “Bulk Add Item” option, which allows you to upload multiple sequences in a project.
A PO number is the purchase order number allocated by your organization for the total amount of the service. If your organization does not issue a PO number, you do not need to enter a purchase order number.
No, you can also invoice directly to pay by check, wire transfer, or PayPal ®. If your organization uses an internal reference or purchase order number, you can enter the number at the time of ordering.
No, if you save the draft, your project will just be saved in your account for your own future reference.
For best performance, use Microsoft IE8 + or the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Apple Safari.
