A growing field that looks to exploit the intelligent material and structural properties of DNA, with the potential to transform a number of industries
Application of dbDNA™
dbDNA™ constructs are a clean, cost-effective DNA source that enables scaling of nanotechnology applications. Key benefits of dbDNA™ include:
Complete sequence design control dbDNA™ is entirely user defined without the need for extraneous or undesireable sequenes.
Industrial scale dbDNA™ is linearly scalable through the multi-gram scale and because it is in vitro, is not susceptible to yield loss when amplifying complicated secondary structures (e.g. direct repeats, homopolymeric stretches).
Rapid process for speed to market cGMP dbDNA™ production is a two-week process, including QC.
Low cost Scaled cGMP dbDNA™ production costs are an order of magnitude less that pDNA
2D and 3D DNA structures are used either alone or in composite with materials to create nanoelectronic components.
DNA can be used to create materials that perform ‘smart’ functions such as healing, response to their surrounding or energy harvesting.
Small single stranded nucleic acids that fold into a defined 3D structure with high affinity for a target of interest. DNA is used as the single stranded nucleic acid sequence that dictates the shape of the aptamer structure.
Computing and data storage
Uses molecular biology to compute basic logic problems, and the code carrying capacity of DNA to store data in a very high density, long-term storage medium.
