  • Patent number: 10336998
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a HTP microbial genomic engineering platform that is computationally driven and integrates molecular biology, automation, and advanced machine learning protocols. This integrative platform utilizes a suite of HTP molecular tool sets to create HTP genetic design libraries, which are derived from, inter alia, scientific insight and iterative pattern recognition. The HTP genomic engineering platform described herein is microbial strain host agnostic and therefore can be implemented across taxa. Furthermore, the disclosed platform can be implemented to modulate or improve any microbial host parameter of interest.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20180127804
    Abstract: Provided herein are methods, compositions, and kits for simultaneously sequencing polynucleotides from a plurality of samples in a single sequencing run. In an embodiment, the present invention improves efficiency of the next-generation sequencing process, in part, by reducing reaction volumes to a sub-microliter range and generating and using a set of novel barcode sequences to tag a plurality of polynucleotides. In addition, the sample preparation processes have been simplified to save time and cost, while providing high-quality sequence coverage for all samples.

  • Publication number: 20140038294
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for defining a nucleic acid construct for integration at locus L of an organism. Nucleic acid requests are received, each such request specifying a genetic change to L. The request are expanded into component polynucleotides which are then arranged into {AR1, . . . , ARm} different arrangements, each ARi in {AR1, . . . , ARm} defining a different arrangement of the component polynucleotides. A score Si for each ARi in {AR1, . . . , ARm} is determined based on whether source constructs encoding a portion of ARi are physically present. An ARf in {AR1, . . . , ARm} is selected based on the score for ARf. Primer pairs are calculated to amplify the portions of ARf not represented in the source constructs. The portions of ARf amplified by the primer pairs and the portions of ARf in the source constructs, ordered by ARf, define the nucleic acid construct.
