How GenScript Expedites Your Synthetic Biology Projects

Among the three phases involved in synthetic biology projects, bottlenecks usually occur during the build stage, as the simultaneous assembly of different DNA circuitry can be costly, time-consuming, and complex. To overcome this challenge, several enabling technologies, such as gene synthesis and molecular engineering, can be utilized. As the industry leader in these fields, GenScript offers an array of services to help streamline the build phase of your synthetic biology projects. Discuss your project with our scientists to learn how we can help you.
