From gene to protein – extending gene synthesis to reliable protein expression

In this webinar, Dr. Michael Liss, Research and Development manager at Thermo Fisher Scientific, discusses how to conveniently and rapidly obtain optimized synthetic genes from electronic sequence data and how optimized sequences help ensure that you get the highest expressed protein yields. In this webinar, you will see how gene optimization works and how it affects protein expression on multiple levels to help deliver increased overall expression reliability and protein yields. You will also learn the basis of gene synthesis and how the GeneArt® protein expression service is a convenient and fast way to outsource your protein expression projects. Whether you’re interested in outsourcing individual steps in the gene-to-protein workflow (e.g., gene synthesis and cloning into expression vectors), or you’d like us to complete the entire workflow, we have the solution for you.

Fast, simple alternative to traditional cloning

This webinar illustrates how a significant amount of time could be saved by cutting out the unnecessary steps from traditional cloning and moving into gene synthesis. Gene synthesis has become a cost-effective, time- and resource-saving method for obtaining nearly any desired DNA construct with 100% accuracy. It outperforms conventional molecular biology techniques in terms of time and cost, while providing equivalent or better expression performance and construct stability and quality. Watch this webinar and go beyond traditional synthesis and build your next breakthrough using next-generation cloning.

Move beyond traditional DNA cloning and editing

In this webinar, learn how to clone or edit DNA in a single step, harnessing the power of homologous recombination. No more restriction digests, end repair, ligation, subcloning, and enzyme inactivation steps with DNA loss at every stage. Even multi-site mutagenesis is made simpler with homologous recombination, making substitutions, deletions, or insertions easier than ever. Watch this webinar and you’ll cut, edit, and create DNA faster than ever.
