Tips for working with gBlocks® Gene Fragments

While the ever-increasing availability of genomic sequence information simplifies the process of obtaining target DNA fragments, especially through the use of PCR, one still must complete multiple, labor intensive steps to obtain the desired DNA constructs. You can eliminate many of these steps and start experiments more quickly and economically by substituting custom synthesized double-stranded DNA fragments in place of DIY constructs. gBlocks Gene Fragments are sequence verified DNA fragments that can be used in any application requiring double-stranded DNA. In the video, Ann Tigges, Synthetic Biology Business Coordinator at IDT, describes what to do when you receive your gBlocks Gene Fragments. Included is practical information on how to resuspend, quantify, and calculate the copy number of your gBlocks Gene Fragments.
