Break through with the help of DNA2.0 in 2012. This is the one resolution that will help you succeed with the all the others on your research list.

Menlo Park, Calif. (PRWEB) January 20, 2012

Achieve your most import resolution for 2012—to work smarter, not harder— by letting DNA2.0 bioengineering solutions save you time and money and achieve better results. Whether you are looking to make the upgrade from cloning to synthesis, want the peace of mind that comes with guaranteed expression or need a variant library to engineer protein function, it’s time to make the leap to DNA2.0.

12 Reasons to Switch to DNA2.0 in 2012

12 Reasons to Switch to DNA2.0 in 2012

While you consider all the reasons to make the switch, check out the ever-growing list of leading scientists that have already had their breakthroughs with a little help from DNA2.0: https://www.dna20.com/successstories.php

1. Save Time—Don’t let the competition get ahead of you

Every day saved in the process of accessing your genetic constructs is a day gained on the competition. First to publish is also first to get the next grant. First to patent is also first to get the next VC round. DNA2.0 Rush Service offers custom synthesized genes up to 1kb in size guaranteed to ship in 5 business days—the fastest available. Our regular service is an industry-leading 8-10 day turnaround.

2. Focus on Innovation—Our approach is light years ahead of any other provider

You’re not in the lab to clone genes, you’re there to do science. Don’t spend months fiddling with expression vectors, tags, culture conditions and temperatures. With maximal protein expression powered by our patentedGeneGPS™ algorithms, you can focus on the critical experiments that advance your research.

3. Reliable, High-Protein Expression Yields with GeneGPS

No point in getting a synthetic gene if it does not express your protein. Breakthrough research by DNA2.0 has identified the design principles by which codons are used to maximize protein expression. The peer-reviewed, published research, funded by the National Science Foundation, has produced a set of design algorithms that reliably offers maximized expression yields for heterologous protein expression.

4. Instantly Scale Up or Down

You need 1,000 genes today and then nothing for 12 months? You need a simple gene or multisite combinatorial library? How about synthesizing an entire genome? No problem. DNA2.0 handles large and small orders with equal efficiency. No need to scale your in-house molecular biology resources to fit the ups and down of your research. And DNA2.0 is the industry leader at synthesizing long and/or difficult sequences, from 200 kb and up!

5. Answers to Protein Questions

When your research needs to go beyond the everyday, DNA2.0 has the expertise to take you to the next level. UtilizeProtein Variant Libraries for structure-function relationship analysis, or modifying the activities of proteins or DNA regulatory regions. Harness the power of synthetic biology to create Antibody Libraries with diversity in one or more CDRs. DNA2.0 makes libraries in several formats to meet different research needs. Libraries are delivered ready for screening to identify variants with altered function.

6. Improve on Nature

Any sequence you can imagine is available with synthetic genes. DNA2.0’s rapid and efficient custom gene synthesis allows you to redesign entire gene sequences to maximize the likelihood of high protein expression, easy genetic manipulation, minimal promoter leakiness and convenient protein purification.

7. Avoid Mistakes

Why risk losing time on mistakes that could happen in-house? Why go with bargain synthesis providers that can’t guarantee strong protein expression? When you ask DNA2.0 to handle your gene synthesis, we make sure you get the genes you need, every time, on time. Never again curse the Gods of PCR.

8. Get to the Point—Engineer the Right Protein

Find the protein activity you need with ProteinGPS™—the protein engineering system that quickly and efficiently designs proteins with improved characteristics. ProteinGPS relies on identifying key amino acid substitutions through bioinformatics-based mining of available sequence space and combining such substitutions in an information maximized variant dataset (usually less than 100 unique gene variants).  At that scale determining the activity for the commercially relevant function in an indicative assay can be readily performed. By optimizing directly for function in the final application, you can save years of time and millions of dollars.

9. Talk to a Scientist

Instant access to expertise in the fields of protein expression, gene synthesis and the voodoo of cloning. We at DNA2.0 have published extensively in the area of technology development and new applications of synthetic biology. DNA2.0 is a resource and research partner for accurate and innovative, useful solutions. Want an actual person to answer when you have a question? Let our Customer Service Ph.D.s be an extension of your lab.

10. Airtight IP Protection

DNA2.0 understands the value of your intellectual property. DNA2.0 never outsources your gene synthesis orders to facilities in countries with lax IP protection. DNA2.0 synthesizes all orders at our state-of-the-art facility in Menlo Park, California. You always own full rights to your material.

11. Groundbreaking Gene Design and Assembly Tool—Free!

What could be easier than using DNA2.0‘s patented drag-and-drop sequence functionality to design genes de novo? DNA2.0’s free Gene Designer enables you to put your imagination to work and guides you through every step, from inspiration to synthesized gene. Simplify your work by utilizing preassembled and validated BIOFAB parts from the Gene Designer Toolbox. With a tool like Gene Designer doing the heavy lifting, you spend more time focused on your research.

12. Freedom of Expression with the pJexpress family of vectors

DNA2.0 synthetic genes are available in vectors that are immediately usable for bacterial, mammalian and yeast protein expression. Cloning into these vectors is quickly completed in-house and the constructs are provided without IP restrictions.
