PEGS: DNA2.0 today introduced Library Designer, an online tool created to make the process of designing and ordering the company’s Protein Variant Libraries easy and seamless. DNA2.0’s variant libraries are delivered ready for screening to identify variants with improved or altered function, which is key to engineering novel proteins. Library Designer helps to ensure that researchers get the right library for their research needs.
Designing a library can be a complicated process. Mistakes can easily happen during design and data transmission, and manual approaches often overlook certain design errors. Library Designer allows researchers the complete freedom to design libraries to their exact specification while checking for sequence accuracy and restriction sites automatically. Library Designer lets DNA2.0 customers visualize the total diversity of the library they are ordering and enables them to specify the delivered product. Finally, Library Designer ensures that the large amount of data embedded in a library order remains intact, guaranteeing that customers receive exactly the library they need to move their research forward.
“DNA2.0 is dedicated to providing our customers the highest level of service, which means ensuring precision accuracy with their data,” said Claes Gustafsson, cofounder and Chief Commercial Officer of DNA2.0. “With Library Designer, we are pleased to be able to apply our scientific resources and expertise to help our customers realize their goals more quickly and efficiently.”
The emerging field of protein engineering offers an extraordinary opportunity to design novel proteins that can be utilized for a wide range of purposes such as creating antibody-based therapeutics or specialized enzymes for energy production or to remove toxins from the environment. By utilizing libraries to screen for desired activity through directed evolution, researchers can more quickly and efficiently engineer useful proteins. DNA2.0’s sequence libraries are powerful tools for structure-function relationship analysis or for modifying the activities of proteins or DNA regulatory regions.
DNA2.0’s Library Design Specialists can help determine the best library or series of libraries to suit the needs of a particular project or research goal. DNA2.0 Protein Variant Libraries are customized for individual research needs and are delivered with the same industry-leading speed and customer service that DNA2.0 guarantees for its complete line of bioengineering solutions.
