GenScript’s GenBrick synthesis service provides DNA sequences as building blocks for synthetic biology applications. Their proprietary technology is used for one-step assembly of DNA fragments, rather than constructing from oligos an short DNA segments.
Genscript developed a test for coronavirus based on a qRT-PCR detection assay that measures the amount of an infectious agent in the bloodstream. The test is being offered freely to researchers. Genscript synthesized genes for use as a positive control for detection of 2019-nCoV in vaccine and antibody development. The coronavirus strain has more recently been renamed SARS-CoV-2 with the disease called COVID-19 (coronavirus disease).

- DNA synthesisThe process of linking together nucleotide bases adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C) and guanine (G) to form a DNA molecule. DNA synthesis occurs in the cell during DNA replication. Synthetic DNA synthesis, also called gene synthesis, is the chemical synthesis of single stranded DNA oligonucleotides which are assembled into DNA.
