Planned maintenance

We must perform activities that will impact the ability to place orders on our website. Starting Friday, May 21, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern to Sunday, May 23, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern, you will not be able to order products on our website. You will still be able to browse and access your account. We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause.

Synthetic Biology Solutions

Biological systems design and development

Synthetic biology combines science and engineering to enable the design and construction of novel pathways, devices, and systems, as well as the re-design of natural biological processes. With the ATCC Synthetic Biology Tool Kit, researchers can easily create complex pathways designed to understand and address current challenges in medicine, energy, agriculture, ecology, and industry. Get started with our growing selection of:

  • Destination, donor, and carrier vectors
  • Constitutive, inducible, and regulatable promoters
  • Selection markers

Create complex genetic circuits in yeast in 4-7 days! With our two-stage assembly system, researchers can build multiple transcriptional units in parallel, enabling individual elements to be swapped out quickly and easily. What’s more, this system doesn’t require gel extractions or polymerase chain reactions, thus reducing potential mutation rates. Design your biological systems today!
