Next-Generation DNA Assembly Tools

Emergence of Synthetic Biology Necessitates New Solutions to Generate Molecules

  • Conclusion

    In anticipation of an imminent paradigm shift, largely due to the emergence of the synthetic biology field, our ultimate goal is to reach a comprehensive solution to generate any DNA molecule up to high-level genetic systems starting from digital sequences stored in a computer. The approaches presented in this article are relevant not only for the area of synthetic biology but they also have remarkable implications for the current cloning standards.
