Gene Fragments for Optimal Cell-Free Protein Expression

A promising tool for accelerating synthetic and molecular biology

Synthetic biologists continuously design and engineer DNA sequences and test the resulting proteins for valuable and improved function. Cell-free protein expression has the potential to accelerate this cycle, as it only requires a DNA template encoding the target protein and a solution containing components to drive transcription and translation. For rapid and efficient protein purification, researchers use custom synthesized gene fragments as templates, removing the need for cloning.
