Learn more about precise genome editing
Precision TALs were derived from Xanthomonas, a genus of plant pathogens. These pathogens specifically recognize the DNA of the host with a protein containing 17–18 repeats of approximately 34 amino acids each. Enjoy this video about Precision TALs, which have been shown to be effective in a broad range of organisms, including plants, algae, and fungi.

GeneArt® Gene Synthesis and Subcloning Services

    

Enhanced online ordering of GeneArt® Gene Synthesis and Subcloning Services

  

Thanks to your feedback, Life Technologies has greatly enhanced online ordering for our gene synthesis and subcloning services. Fewer working steps, combined with intelligent features, results in quicker and easier handling.

Among other improvements, you will benefit from:

  • One step to enter all information for a sequence that does not need any edits
  • Automated in silico cloning that immediately delivers a vector map and gb file of your cloned gene construct


See how easy it is

Q&A 

 

Learn about Precision TALs for plants from Reed Hickey, product manager.


Q: Why are GeneArt® Precision TALs such a good fit for plant genome engineering?

A: TAL is the first technology of its kind that not only allows researchers to target any locus in the genome, but also offers a clear path for commercial use of their discoveries through the Two Blades Foundation. TAL is also a plant-based technology, and has been effective in organisms like algae, fungi, and other plants. Native TAL Fok1 is the best ordering option for plant science research.

Rewriting the Script

 


"...many genetic diseases arise because people carry broken or dysfunctional versions of one gene or another. If there were a way to add a properly working copy of those genes back in, the associated diseases should go away, or at least get a whole lot better."
