Simplifies the computational design of such synthetic biology parts. PartsGenie allows flexible design of multiple synthetic biology parts through the use of a simple web interface. Designs can be assembled through the arrangement of multiple features, which can be drag-and-dropped from a palette that include ribosome binding sites (RBSs), or coding DNA sequences (CDSs). It offers an integrated UniProt search tool, allowing sequences, NCBI Taxonomy terms and enzyme classification (EC) numbers to be automatically extracted and associated with the CDS, facilitating future traceability.
