New gene technology allows for faster feedstock modification

May 29, 2013 |

In Massachusetts, Gen9 announced the commercial availability of GeneBytes™ DNA constructs, or gene fragments, manufactured at lengths ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 base pairs long. Scientists researching alternative energy sources, for example, are investigating ways in which certain plants can be modified to produce more material that can be turned into a biofuel. Providing longer DNA constructs allows them to look at full genes, rather than fragments, faster and with less trial and error.
