PMCID: 5765510
PMID: 28922469
DOI: 10.1002/bit.26454

[…] (δ4‐105) the bases 4–105, coding for the transmembrane domain, were deleted according to revers, wilson, webberley, and flitsch (). all nucleotide sequences were codon usage optimized (software: gene designer, dna 2.0, menlo park, ca) for expression in e. coli. restriction sites for subcloning into pet‐28a (+) were added to the sequences as follows: ppa (ncoi, xhoi), ppk2 (ndei, saci), […]

PMCID: 5577221
PMID: 28855614
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-10546-0

[…] the gene should be designed based on the codon usage pattern of the host strain of the expression system and the codon selection constraints of the target gene–., many methods, including cool, gene designer, gene composer, jcat, costar and optimizer, have been proposed to design heterologous genes which are expected to be efficiently expressed in the host organism. based on our knowledge, […]

PMID: 25340050
DOI: 10.3389/fbioe.2014.00041

[…] of a universally optimum solution., we have decided to investigate 11 software packages that are available at the time of this writing: dnaworks, jcat, synthetic gene developer, genedesign, gene designer 2.0, optimizer, visual gene developer, eugene, mrna optimizer, codon optimization online (cool), and d-tailor. all of these tools are available on the web and can be freely downloaded […]

[…] for enhancing recombinant protein production in heterologous expression hosts []. consequently, the algorithms implemented in many of the sequence design software tools, such as codon optimizer [], gene designer [], and optimizer [], are mainly focused on the frequency of individual codon occurrences. notably, the popular web-based software, known as the java codon adaptation tool (jcat), […]

PMID: 19429897
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkp361

[…] in the definition of new grammars, the complexity of this process makes it unlikely that it will be possible to develop a grammar-building wizard in the foreseeable future., like the stand-alone gene designer () or the web-based registry of standard biological parts, genocad allows users to quickly design new genetic constructs by combining sequences corresponding to various functional […]
