What is the turnaround time for gene synthesis?

The turnaround time for custom genes is largely dependent on the sequence length, and can also be affected by the presence of difficult sequence features (high G/C content, long repeats, stable hairpins). IDT MiniGene™ constructs (up to 400 bp) have a typical turnaround of 6–8 business days, whereas IDT Genes constructs (401–1000 bp) have a typical turnaround of 8–12 business days. For turnaround times of genes >1000 bp, or for inquires specific to your sequence, please contact IDT Gene Support at
