Overview Service Process Examples and Solutions Applications Frequently Asked Questions


Gene circuits are engineered networks of genes designed to interact in specific ways to produce desired outputs. These circuits can function like electronic circuits, with components such as promoters, repressors, activators, and feedback loops. Our gene circuit construction services encompass the entire process of creating these circuits, leveraging advanced genetic engineering tools and techniques to build reliable and functional gene circuits for various applications.

Service Process

The process of gene circuit construction involves several critical and interrelated steps:

  1. Conceptual Design: Collaborating with researchers to define the desired functions and outcomes of the gene circuit. This includes identifying key components and regulatory elements.
  2. Component Selection: Choosing appropriate genetic elements such as promoters, enhancers, repressors, and other regulatory sequences based on their compatibility and effectiveness in the circuit.
  3. Modeling and Simulation: Using computational tools to model the gene circuit and predict its behavior under various conditions. This step helps optimize the design for desired performance.
  4. DNA Synthesis and Assembly: Synthesizing the genetic components and assembling them into the desired configuration. This step involves cloning, sequencing, and verifying the constructed gene circuit.
  5. Delivery into Host Cells: Introducing the gene circuit into the target cells using methods such as transformation, transfection, or viral transduction. Efficient delivery is crucial for functional validation.
  6. Functional Validation: Testing the gene circuit in the host cells to ensure it performs as expected. This includes monitoring gene expression, protein production, and cellular behavior.
  7. Optimization and Iteration: Refining the gene circuit based on experimental results and iterating the design to achieve optimal performance.
