Equipment with an advanced technology platform and powerful synthetic biology tools, we have the ability to help bring diverse synthetic biology applications and creative ideas to fruition.
In synthetic biology, biological components are assembled into systems with practical applications in new ways. One important application is gene regulation, i.e., controlling the flow of genetic information from nucleic acids to proteins. Regulation plays a critical role in the optimization of protein levels and their activity, as well as the subsequent metabolite levels and other cellular properties. According to the central dogma of molecular biology, information flow commences with transcription, which makes regulatory tools that target transcription receive the most attention in synthetic biology. Transcriptomic analysis has been particularly helpful for synthetic biology research and applications.
Transcriptome refers to the sum of all RNA transcripts of an organism. The transcriptomic analysis allows for the characterization of transcriptional activity and can capture a snapshot in time of the total transcripts present in a cell. Measuring transcriptomes at different times, or in different tissues and conditions provides critical information about how genes are regulated. With the improvement of transcriptome analysis techniques, transcriptomic analysis enables the creation of a global picture of cellular function by profiling thousands of genes at once. Data analysis methods have also been steadily adapted to analyze increasing amounts of data more accurately and efficiently.
