How we made our parts

Part Design: Using primers that contain Biobrick ends, parts were isolated from Pichia pastoris chromosomal DNA with PCR reactions. To increase the likelihood of gaining a successful product, a systematic approach was applied for primer design. Two sets of primers were constructed for each part using IDT®’s PrimerQuest and Oligoanalyzer programs. The first set added an Xpa I site on the forward and a Spe I site on the reverse. The second set added EcoRI, Not I and Xba I sites on the forward and Pst I, Not I and Spe I sites on the reverse. In this way, hybrid primer combinations were assembled providing a total of four PCR products. With this system, we have successfully acquired a biobrick prospective product for each part.
