    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The manual design of synthetic genes is a tedious and error-prone process-even for very short genes-and it becomes completely infeasible when multiple synthetic genes are needed. GeneDesign is a set of modules that automate batch nucleotide manipulation. Here, we explain the installation, configuration, and use of GeneDesign as part of a synthetic design workflow.
