Custom Gene Synthesis from Bio Basic

Bio Basic is Canadian-based and a world leader in custom synthesis of mini genes and genes. From the easiest to the most complicated gene syntheses, Bio Basic has the expertise.

*Please note that the turnaround time is dependent on the complexity and length of a gene. The proposed standard TAT gene synthesis is based on a gene with little to no complexities and with a length of about 1,000 bases.

What do I receive? Bio Basic supplies 4 μg of lyophilized plasmid containing your gene, and up to 10 μg for no extra charge. All genes are verified by Sanger Sequencing, as well as other QC measures.

Subcloning Services: The default is blunt end cloning into pUC57 with either Amp or Kan resistance. Subcloning into one of the following vectors is also free of charge:

Bio Basic keeps many vectors in-house, shown below. Subcloning into one of the following vectors costs a standard subcloning price of $150:

Custom Vector Subcloning: Lastly, you can send your own vector to BioBasic, and they will perform the cloning for you (for the same fee of $150). Our drivers take care of picking up the materials from your lab and shipping them to BioBasic for a fee of $40. When sending us instructions for your subcloning project, please provide:

  • Gene sequence(s)
  • Vector Sequence(s)
  • Final Expected Sequences of Plasmid(s), and relevant cloning instructions for BioBasic to follow (such as cloning sites to be used)

This can be supplied in any format, including WORD doc or SnapGene file.

How to Receive a Price Quote: Bio Basic reviews all sequences before accepting a project. Therefore, in order to receive a price quote, work order, and ETA specific for your project, please send all your project details to techsupport@syntezza.com.

Additional Services: Additional services offered by Bio Basic include codon optimization, for no additional charge. They also offer maxi-prep of plasmids, with amounts up to 30 mg.
