DNA2.0 Unlocks The Secrets Of Optimized Gene Design: Company Identifies Codon Choice Design Principles for Optimal Protein Expression
Date:9/14/2009

To achieve high levels of protein expression, many researchers have abandoned cloning in favor of synthetic genes, which can be acquired in a couple of weeks at a reasonable cost. Unlike a natural gene, a synthetic gene can be designed to use any codon to encode each amino acid. This has the potential to be a huge advantage, as most researchers have come to accept that "codon optimization" can affect protein expression. DNA2.0 has produced a set of gene optimization design algorithms that allow the company to reliably offer expression yields up to 50 times greater than competing approaches.

Menlo Park, Calif (PRWEB) September 14, 2009 -- DNA2.0, the leading gene synthesis and protein engineering company, today announced the results of breakthrough research that has enabled the company to identify the design principle by which codons may be chosen to optimize protein expression. DNA2.0's research, which is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, has produced a set of design algorithms that allow the company to reliably offer expression yields up to 50 times greater than competing approaches. The paper, "Design Parameters to Control Synthetic Gene Expression in Escherichia coli" appears today in the publication, PLoS ONE (http://dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0007002).
