Whitepaper showcases next-generation plasmid technology

NanoplasmidTM. We’ve been discussing this topic quite a bit recently, and now our latest whitepaper brings you an in-depth examination of our novel Next-Generation plasmid technology. The etiology of its name, “nano,” originates from its purposefully designed “small” backbone of around 500 base pairs (bp) as compared to traditional plasmids that often exceed 2000 bp. This reduced backbone size is a direct result of removing prokaryotic and antibiotic-resistance genes used to select transformed bacteria and propagate a vector.
