I found a mutation in my clone. Is there a problem with the gBlocks™ Gene Fragment?

gBlocks Gene Fragments are not clonal products and are synthesized using both chemical and enzymatic steps, so there will be a subpopulation in the tube with truncations, deletions, or mutations.

Fortunately, the large majority of sequences should be correct, so by sequencing a few more colonies you should find a correct clone.
