DNA tool kit goes live online
The latest shopping website is open for business, offering unusual wares: DNA tools to help biologists to engineer life. The DNA sequences — which allow precise control of gene activity in the bacterium Escherichia coli — are the first output of BIOFAB, which calls itself "the world's first biological design-build facility." Launched in 2009 with a $1.4-million grant from the National Science Foundation, BIOFAB aims to advance synthetic biology by creating standard biological "parts" in the form of DNA sequences that control gene expression.
