TeselaGen Biotechnology announced today the release of its Community Edition, a powerful, easy-to-use version of its popular DESIGN Module within the TeselaGen® Operating System for biotechnology. The free, cloud-based software gives access to previously unavailable tools for designing DNA constructs or DNA assemblies, designing primers, and visualizing and editing DNA plasmids.

“Our Community Edition is more powerful than traditional desktop tools for automated biological design and more robust than existing free tools,” said TeselaGen CEO Eduardo Abeliuk, Ph.D. “The release of the Community Edition represents a first step toward bringing state-of-the-art design/build capabilities to a broader range of scientists and bioengineers. We hope that expanding access to our software will help spur innovation across industries, including synthetic biology, biopharma, biofuels, specialty chemicals, and food-tech.”

The TeselaGen Community Edition, is a unified suite of tools for biodesign that reduces the time it takes to generate DNA assembly protocols and makes collaboration across departments and organizations easier. It features a modern open-source vector editor for visually editing and annotating DNA and protein sequences, managing restriction enzymes, and creating usable design parts. The tool also manages DNA, Amino Acid, and Oligo sequences and has a powerful auto annotation feature for cleansing and curating feature annotation. With support for the most advanced DNA assembly algorithms, the Community Edition automatically generates protocols for building a scar-less DNA construct by automatically designing PCR primers for sourcing assembly fragments, or specifying synthons for ordering from a DNA vendor like Twist or IDT.

The full TeselaGen® Operating System makes the production of bio-based products easier, faster, and more cost-effective with a highly secure, enterprise-quality operating system that incorporates artificial intelligence and machine-learning techniques, with very well developed integration capabilities that allow the platform to fit smoothly within any enterprise. The platform is used by both industrial and academic customers including LanzaTech, CSIRO, DTU, JBEI, Stanford, and Harvard, among many others.
