8 Results for 'DNA synthesis'
High Density Information Storage in DNA
A new method developed at the Wyss Institute allows for synthesis of oligonucleotides by the thousands on a single DNA microchip — a collection of thousands of different DNA segments attached to a glass slide or other solid surface. Until now, generating long strands of DNA has been challenging and labor-intensive. Yet Wyss researchers have...
Multiplex Automated Genomic Engineering (MAGE)
Developed at the Wyss Institute, MAGE harnesses the natural principles of evolution to do all the heavy lifting of genome design and automates these steps to dramatically shorten the time scale required to produce microbes with specialized functionalities for manufacturing, sensing and therapeutic applications. Genome engineering has a wide range of applications, from developing new...
