Basic Parts

When constructing our BioBricks, we made use of the IDT synthesis offer. This way we were able to generate our required parts in a fast and efficient way. Additionally, we made use of PCR amplification with our constructed expression plasmids as template to construct several BioBricks. All of the parts contain a coding sequence, some of which extended with promoters or introns. The basic parts forming our fusion protein composite part are documented separately and also exist as separate BioBricks. This is advantageous for those wishing to combine one of our basic parts with a different expression level or compose a different composite part altogether. All BioBricks are submitted with elaborate characterisation so the user may choose the best protein for their project accordingly. Our favourite basic part is dxCas9 BBa_K2643001.
