Abstract
Gen9 is developing a DNA synthesis platform that aims to produce synthetic DNA products at an industry leading length, price point and turnaround time. In this Phase II proposal we outline our approach to extend the processes we developed during the Phase I period. This included high speed assembly of synthetic DNA constructs with perfect sequence fidelity at very low cost. At the end of phase I our technology allows our product to meet several of the requirements outlined in the solicitation. Further development, supported by this Phase II program, will allow Gen9 to develop processes to meet the final specifications of the DARPA solicitation. As well, we outline next generation methods of DNA synthesis, cloning and sequence verification. These developments will solidify Gen9's place as a world class provider of synthetic DNA.
