SHARING OPTIONS:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently awarded a $1.5 million grant to Codon Devices Inc. With the support of the grant, Codon will develop an integrated microfluidics platform to significantly reduce the cost and complexity of building complex DNA fragments. This platform reportedly will advance the state of the art in gene synthesis to improve the utility of synthetic biology approaches for biotechnology research.
"Funding from this initiative will enable us to develop a new generation of rapid, automated systems for construction of longer, more complex DNA sequences," says Brian M. Baynes, founder and president of Codon Devices. "By integrating this technology with our BioFAB Production Platform, we will make these new tools available to our customers and partners and accelerate critical applications such as drug discovery and development of renewable energy systems."
