|20090137408||Methods, systems, and apparatus for facilitating the design of molecular constructs - A system and method for aiding in the design of molecular constructs is provided. A feature set associated with a molecular building block in a construct may be determined, wherein the feature set may comprise data indicative of third party rights that restrict use of the molecular segment or the lack of such rights. The method may include steps of defining a molecular structure for use in the construct; searching a database including a plurality of molecular structures and a plurality of rights, each right of the plurality of rights associated with each of the plurality of molecular structures; and displaying rights associated with the defined molecular structures in response to the search of said database. The system may include a library aggregating a plurality of intellectual property rights relating to fabricating biological constructs; a licensing module licensing the intellectual property rights required to make the specific construct for a fee; an accounts receivable module receiving the fee from a potential maker of the specific construct; and an accounts payable module distributing remuneration to the holders of the intellectual property rights required to make the specific construct.||05-28-2009|
|20090136986||METHODS AND CELLS FOR CREATING FUNCTIONAL DIVERSITY AND USES THEREOF - The invention provides methods and compositions relating to cells having altered functions, and the nucleic acids that impart those functions. Altered cellular function arises from in vivo directed recombination of genetic elements to yield a recombined nucleic acid. These methods and compositions may utilize altered host cells having altered recombination enzyme profiles and/or altered recombination sites. The invention involves in some aspects methods for assembling nucleic acid molecules, such as genomic DNA. Aspects of the invention also provide kits, compositions, devices, and systems for generating novel recombined nucleic acids and cells having altered cell function.||05-28-2009|
|20090087840||Combined extension and ligation for nucleic acid assembly - Certain aspects of the present invention provide methods for assembling nucleic acid molecules. Some embodiments involve analyzing nucleic acid sequences and determining appropriate assembly strategies based on the presence or absence of sequence features that are known or predicted to interfere with extension-based and/or ligation-based assembly techniques. Aspects of the invention also provide kits, compositions, devices, and systems for assembling synthetic nucleic acids using polymerase-based techniques, ligase-based techniques, or combinations thereof.||04-02-2009|
|20090005264||CELL SURFACE DISPLAY, SCREENING AND PRODUCTION OF PROTEINS OF INTEREST - Aspects of the invention provide compositions and methods for displaying engineered polypeptides on a cell surface. According to aspects of the invention, immobilized polypeptides can be screened to identify one or more variants having one or more functional or structural properties of interest. Aspects of the invention provide composition and methods for producing engineered protein or protein variants having a functional or a structural property of interest.||01-01-2009|
