Gibson Assembly® Technology
Gibson Assembly® has become the gold standard for assembling short and long pieces of DNA. Invented by Daniel G. Gibson, co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at SGI-DNA, and colleagues at the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) in 2009 during their efforts to synthesize and assemble genome-sized DNA, the Gibson Assembly® method was integral to the construction of the first synthetic cell.
Gibson Assembly cloning has become the preferred cloning method for routine and complex DNA assembly in laboratories around the world because it’s seamless, faster, and more robust than traditional restriction enzyme cloning.
