Plasmid Design

Our plasmid design services are part of our scientific consulting services. Their purpose is to develop plasmids customized to meet your project unique requirements. Requirements may include freedom to operate, a company own intellectual property, the unusual properties of a gene of interest, or the need to use a non-standard expression host. 

Now that it is becoming increasingly easy, fast, and affordable to get plasmid synthesized, it is becoming difficult to justify using off-the-shelf expression vectors picked from various vendor catalogues. Rather than squeezing your gene of interest int the multiple cloning site of a commercial vector, it is time to build expression vectors around your gene of interest. 

We use our proprietary software GenoCAD to provide plasmid design services. GenoCAD supports a principled approach to plasmid design and provides a framework to collaboration with the clients.
