Off-the-shelf, Echo-based DNA Assembly Automation presented by George McArthur, Arzeda @SLAS2020

George McArthur, PhD, Director, Genetic Design-Build, Arzeda @SLAS2020

Abstract: In this talk, George describes how his team transformed a series of arduous, complex, time-consuming and error-prone laboratory tasks into an effortless, straightforward, fast and mistake-free workflow using a combination of accessible software and hardware automation. He provides a detailed demonstration of the high-throughput DNA assembly platform co-developed by Arzeda, Labcyte, Twist and TeselaGen, which Arzeda uses each week to construct thousands of plasmids to enable testing computationally designed proteins at scale.
