Sometimes miracles happen in the lab….

In order to get on of our pigments, we need to synthesise a piece of DNA. A very large piece of DNA, that would normally cost around £3000 to get synthesised, effectively blowing our synthesis budget for this project. I’ve been spending most of last week agonising about how much of the actual gene we wanted to synthesise, I didn’t want to cut too much out, in case it stopped working.

I got an email from my supervisor last night: DNA2.0 have agreed to synthesise is for us.

For free.


It’s the little things in life….
