Gibson Assembly enables the rapid assembly of multiple DNA fragments using a one-step, isothermal approach.  Since its introduction to the life science community in 2009, Gibson Assembly has become a mainstay in the laboratories of many synthetic biologists and is catching on in the wider life science community due to its ease-of-use, robustness and flexibility.

"New England Biolabs is delighted to work with SGI to introduce Gibson Assembly to our customers.  As a leader in the discovery and development of cloning tools and technologies, NEB has embraced this approach for building DNA constructs, and believes that it will open new opportunities for the manipulation of complex DNAs," states Richard J. Roberts, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer, NEB.

"The Gibson Assembly method is a powerful tool that we believe will enable synthetic biology researchers to make rapid advances leading to new discoveries and products," said J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., Founder and CEO, SGI.  "SGI is pleased to work with industry leader NEB in commercializing this product."

The Gibson Assembly Master Mix includes protocols for primer design, and can be used for assembly of multiple DNA fragments, including linearized vector and insert. For more information about the Gibson Assembly Master Mix, visit www.neb.com/gibsonassembly
