Gene Synthesis

The university has contracted with GENEWIZ for DNA Sequencing services and Gene Synthesis services. For Gene Synthesis, researchers complete an online order form with the sequence of the requested gene or the amino acid of the coded protein, cloning vector, codon usage, and preparation scale. A quotation is issued for review and approval before the project is started. Projects typically take 2-3 weeks for a 2 kb gene. GENEWIZ provides 2-5 µg of the desired gene in the requested vector, a Certificate of Analysis, and sequence trace data.

Often Gene Synthesis provides a faster, more reliable and economical alternative to in-house cloning. Learn more about GENEWIZ Gene Synthesis.
