Startup Spotlight: Pioneering A New Way to Write Long Strands of DNA

Chemical DNA synthesis processes are in widespread use. However these processes struggle to meet the demand for long synthetic DNA due to its limitations in accuracy as sequences lengthen. Molecular Assemblies aims to disrupt the DNA synthesis field with its entirely new enzymatic synthesis technology.

“We’re using enzymes to create DNA[…].This allows us to make longer strands of DNA with fewer steps, which is less laborious and means less error. We also don’t need to use harsh chemicals like the current process does, so there’s less toxic waste associated with the process.” – Mike Kamdar, President and CEO of Molecular Assemblies
