The Concordia research facility is the first of its kind in Canada, and one of about 15 labs in the world to specialize in the automated assembly of DNA parts.
Traditionally, synthetic biologists toiled at the bench, moving small amounts of DNA from one test tube to another, using trial and error to tinker with a few genes at a time. Figuring out the function of a gene, or what DNA changes could re-engineer a gene to do something new would take years.
