DNA synthesis technologies are enabling rapid advancements in the field of synthetic biology, which involves the design and fabrication of novel biological components. The immense promise of DNA synthesis technology is unmistakable, but so is its potential for intentional or accidental misuse. Public health officials and genome engineers can use Signature Science’s bioinformatics workflows and tools and biocuration services to identify sequences of concern and root out potential threats.
