Mostly of relevance for biologists in the community…
Open Bioeconomy Lab have been awarded £20k to spend on DNA synthesis to update the Open Enzyme Collections (Reclone Research in Diagnostics Collection, Open Enzymes, Open Reporters, Protein Expression Toolkit) and Open Yeast Collection but we need to do it quite quickly, due to funder constraints!
Please read the following guide for submission of sequences and send Benchling links (ideally - GenBank files are also OK) for DNA parts that you would like to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 March 2023. We’ll start compiling a list of submissions and share here asap, we just wanted to get people thinking about what to submit.
Feel free to ask here on the forum if you’re unsure of if something fits or how to submit parts!
We are looking for IP-free reporters, enzymes, affinity tags, regulatory elements or other useful stuff for reagent production and research tool purposes.
