GenScript and synthetic biology
The rapidly expanding science of synthetic biology is a field that GenScript, the leading synthetic biology company in the world and the No. 1 gene synthesis supplier in North America, has helped pioneer since 2002. Since de novo gene synthesis is not dependent on naturally occurring DNA templates, sequences can be generated that encode for novel proteins, metabolic circuits or whole genomes. With the advent of novel DNA parts, there are few limitation towards advancing synthetic biology.
