DNA SYNTHESIS: TACKLING THE MAIN BOTTLENECK IN BIOLOGY RESEARCH
A wave of new technologies to synthesize DNA faster, cheaper and more accurately could have a far-reaching impact across all areas of biology research. Ten years ago, Sylvain Gariel was working for the French oil company Total, engineering microorganisms to produce biofuels. It was tedious work. The advent of next-generation sequencing meant that a whole human genome could be read within one day instead of several years. So why not translate that principle into DNA synthesis? Gariel and two of his colleagues at Total started looking for a way to write DNA faster, cheaper and with fewer errors. In 2014, they founded DNAScript. The goal of this company based in Paris is to develop a brand new way of writing DNA that can replace traditional chemical synthesis. CLARA RODRÍGUEZ FERNÁNDEZ READ MORE
