Life Technologies

The GeneArt algae engineering portfolio has been expanded to include kits that can be used to boost protein production and cloning efficiencies. These kits, which are genetic modification and expression systems for photosynthetic microalgae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and Synechococcus elongatus, contain high-expression vectors capable of driving production of genes of interest to as much as 10% of total cellular protein; transformation reagents that can boost introduction of DNA into cells by as much as a thousand-fold over what is typically achieved with current techniques; reagents and a protocol enabling researchers to freeze and store Chlamydomonas strains at −80°C.
