MWG Biotech / Eurofins Medigenomix develop new software to optimize sequences for gene synthesis(PresseBox) (Ebersberg, )
MWG Biotech, through their alliance with Eurofins Medigenomix, has a long track record in synthetic gene production. Based on advanced techniques and optimized processes, the companies offer fast and reliable gene synthesis services, where all process steps including oligonucleotide production, design and processing of gene synthesis and final quality control of the genes are handled in-house.
Several years of experience in gene synthesis was used to develop new sequence optimization algorithms. The resulting software “GENEius”
provides enhanced functions, such as the automatic adaptation of the codon usage, which can optimize DNA sequences for protein expression in a target organism. GENEius also prevents direct or indirect repeats and hairpin structures in the optimized sequence, in that way solving problems during transcription or translation. Unlike other codon adaptation programs, GENEius does not affect codon adaptation quality when optimising for other features.
Dr. Stefan Blickling, Head of Sales Europe, says: “The intelligent features of this sophisticated software help us to strengthen our position as the high quality provider of synthetic genes. It provides us with a tool to design products for our customers, so that they can achieve optimal results from their experiments.”
