Market Report Description

The Global Gene Synthesis Market size is expected to reach $5.2 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 17.9% CAGR during the forecast period.

Gene synthesis is the process of developing or generating artificial genes through scientific processes. In addition, Gene synthesis refers to the process in which genes are developed through various methods intending to assemble and construct genes from the nucleotide. A nucleotide is a basic and fundamental block in the process of building nucleic acid.

In fact, RNA and DNA are formed by long chains of nucleotides. These substances consist of sugar molecules attached to a group of phosphate and a base that contains nitrogen. The Gene synthesis process allows the scientist and researchers to specify and personalize the desired sequence directly.

The number of research and development in genomics and advanced sequencing is rapidly rising and carries the potentials to enhance the future of the gene synthesis market. Also, the rising scale of investments and funding by the government would also develop the field of gene synthesis.

Artificial gene synthesis, which is also called DNA synthesis, is a different form of Gene synthesis. The DNA synthesis in living cells occurs when gene molecules get synthesized by all living cells through a process of DNA replication.

DNA replication is a process in which a double-stranded gene molecule is copied with the purpose to make two similar DNA molecules. Unlike the natural gene synthesis procedure, artificial gene synthesis does not need any template to copy DNA molecules. Instead, it allows any virtually developed DNA sequence to be synthesized.
