    Synthetic Biology

    The evolution of our understanding of life sciences has opened the doors to recreate natural systems and even design biological functions and systems that do not exist in nature. NEB supports synthetic biology research by providing the NEBuilder® HiFi DNA Assembly products (NEB #E2621 and #E5520), BioBrick® Assembly Kit (NEB #E0546) and the Gibson Assembly™ Products (NEB #E2611, and #E5510). These products are helpful to the synthetic biology community because of their convenience, flexibility and suitability for a wide range of sequence sizes.

    2. DNA Blunting Tutorial

      The first step in determining how your ends will be blunted is to determine if they are 5´ or 3´ overhangs. This tutorial will teach you how to identify what type of overhang you have, as well as which enzyme will blunt that end, and how.
