What are gBlocks?

gBlocks Gene Fragments are high-fidelity, double-stranded DNA fragments (125–3000 bp) that can be used for easy gene assembly, genome editing, qPCR standards, and much more.

"With this offer, iGEM teams will live in the future of synthetic biology, where the cost and effort of obtaining the required DNA constructs are no longer limiting factors. Thanks to IDT, the teams can focus on imagining, engineering, and testing the novel devices they create to solve important world problems. This is the promise of DNA synthesis and the future of the industry."
