The DNA mass production zone

Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and Harvard University in the USA have devised a new way to mass produce short, single-stranded DNA molecules, which they suggest could solve many of the problems associated with current production methods. The new method is versatile and able to solve problems that currently restrict the production of DNA fragments. We've used enzymatic production methods to create a system that not only improves the quality of the manufactured oligonucleotides but that also makes it possible to scale up production using bacteria in order to produce large amounts of DNA copies cheaply, explains team member Björn Högberg.
