Cell-free transcription-translation (TXTL) is becoming a popular laboratory research tool covering a growing number of multidisciplinary applications. TXTL is employed in biology, bioengineering, synthetic biology and biological physics. Major applications of TXTL include biomanufacturing and prototyping DNA programs, from regulatory elements to gene circuits. The new generation of TXTL systems is user-friendly, powerful and versatile. Combined with automated liquid dispensing, TXTL can dramatically accelerate bioengineering and the characterization of novel technologies, such as CRISPR. Labcyte Inc., the sponsor of this Lab Tools webinar, provides a unique, automated acoustic liquid handler ideal for TXTL work.
