£2.2M synthetic biology grant

Feb 13th 2015, 17:04

A grant of £2.2M has been awarded for a collaboration between Oxford, Liverpool, Bristol, Southampton, and Birmingham universities; led by Professor Tom Brown. Ever larger pieces of DNA, such as genes and gene clusters, are required for Synthetic Biology, and making these can be a tedious and slows process. In this project they will analyse DNA made by modern ultra-high throughput chemical methods and optimise the process. They will also explore new ways to make large pieces of DNA.
