UCLA scientists develop low-cost way to build gene sequences

A new technique pioneered by UCLA researchers could enable scientists in any typical biochemistry laboratory to make their own gene sequences for only about $2 per gene. Researchers now generally buy gene sequences from commercial vendors for $50 to $100 per gene. The approach, DropSynth, which is described in the January issue of the journal Science, makes it possible to produce thousands of genes at once.
