Nelson continued, “The global commercial launch of the BioXp System marks an important point in the advancement of the synthetic genomics industry. Our fully automated, high fidelity gene printer ushers in a new era wherein researchers will never need to clone a gene again. For the first time in history, we’ve empowered researchers, worldwide with the tools to dramatically accelerate workflows related to protein engineering, synthesis of biological libraries for drug discovery, and CRISPR genome editing. Simply put, what used to take up to six weeks can now be performed within a few hours and with only the push of a button.”
In addition to the continuous commercial licensing of SGI-DNA’s Gibson Assembly intellectual property estate, comprising over 50 issued patents, the company will accelerate the development of innovative solutions, including the DBC System (Digital-to-Biological Converter) for on-demand printing of biological materials such as therapeutics and vaccines, and proprietary approaches to DNA synthesis and DNA data storage. Leveraging their Gibson Assembly Technology, SGI-DNA is well positioned to emerge as the leader in digital synthetic biology.
“Our proprietary synthetic DNA technologies have made possible numerous scientific firsts including the first synthetic genomes and cells, and enabling the development of the BioXp and DBC automation platforms,” Dan Gibson Ph.D., CTO and Co-Founder of SGI-DNA commented. “We are thrilled to empower customers worldwide with our growing portfolio of synthetic genomics toolsets and instruments for emerging digital DNA applications.”
