Building with Synthetic Biology
Assembling biological systems requires a variety of tools - circuits, switches, gates, and more. To help you find the tools you need, we've organized a new synthetic biology resource guide. Find highlights of the guide below, as well as hot plasmids, our most popular blog posts, and news about the opening of our new London office!

Resource Guide: Synthetic Biology


Synthetic biology system design is enabled by the assembly of well-characterized genetic parts, including promoters, terminators, cDNA, effectors, or any other functional element. We've organized the SynBio plasmids in our collection to help make the design and building process even easier!
