Here are all the links from the May meeting’s newsreel. Enjoy!
1. Gen9 and Arzeda sign DNA synthesis deal. In related news, Twist Bioscience partners with Microsoft on DNA data storage. But how big is the synthetic DNA market? Rob Carlson’s perspective.
5. De novo design of protein structures which associate via hydrogen bond networks (as opposed to hydrophobic effects).
8. Moss assembles DNA in vivo (like yeast!).
10. DNA-guided genome editing with Natronobacter gregoryi Argonaute (NgAgo)—comparable in vitro editing to Cas9, but uses guide DNA rather than RNA, and doesn’t require a PAM sequence!
