Since the double helix structure of DNA has been deciphered, the chemical synthesis of DNA has been carried out until the final development of the solid phase phosphoramidite triester synthesis method currently used in DNA synthesizers in the 1990s. Gene synthesis is the synthesis of artificial double-stranded DNA molecules by machines, it does not rely on natural materials but rather uses chemical methods to synthesize genes.
Gene synthesis is widely used in various fields of life science research. Gene fragments are often used in biological research, and some gene fragments are not easy to obtain. You can use gene synthesis to easily obtain the target gene. In addition, with the help of gene synthesis technology, scientists can design and synthesize any gene that does not exist in nature itself. At present, the nucleotide and amino acid sequences of many genes and proteins have been elucidated, and people can already synthesize peptide and protein genes with practical application and research value according to their needs. Synthetic genes have been reported to include human growth hormones, interferon, insulin, epidermal growth factors, interleukin II, and colony-stimulating factors. These genes have been cloned, and most of them have been expressed in prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems.
As the cost of gene synthesis decreases and the demand for related technologies in synthetic biology grows, the overall market demand for gene synthesis will increase significantly. Generally speaking, the growth rate of mature industries are prone to slow down gradually, while the growth rate of emerging industries tends to quickly improve. Gene synthesis is still an emerging industry, and there is much more room for growth in the future.
Synbio Technologies provides our customers a simple one-stop shop that satisfies all of their DNA manufacturing needs. We have developed the most comprehensive platforms of oligo synthesis, gene synthesis (fragment and clonal genes), and next-generation high-throughput gene synthesis to meet our customers’ needs in quality, speed, budget, and applications. We routinely synthesize over 3 million base pairs of gene sequences each month for a wide range of applications including protein production, antibody discovery, genetically engineered vaccines, molecular breeding, biofuel, and many more.
