Site-Directed Mutagenesis Services
Site-directed mutagenesis facilitates life science research by creating specific DNA mutations (including point mutations, deletion mutations, and insertion mutations) to enable studies of gene regulatory elements, DNA-protein interactions, protein structure/function, enzyme active sites, and novel proteins.
GenScript's site-directed mutagenesis services provide a fast, cost-saving, way to get 100% accurate mutant DNA clones, without having to spend your time and money on mutagenesis kits to do PCR mutagenesis, cloning, and sequencing in your own lab. Powered by our industry-leading gene synthesis technology and high-performance GS polymerase, GenScript can make any gene template and any number of mutations, starting at just $99/mutant and 5-day turnaround time.
Advantages of GenScript's Site-Directed Mutagenesis Services
- Unparalleled Accuracy: GenScript's high performance GS polymerase ensures accuracy of mutants, avoiding creation of unwanted mutations.
- Unlimited Sites: Using our sophisticated gene synthesis and mutagenesis technology, GenScript can introduce mutations at any site.
- Mutations on Large DNA Constructs: Our technology is optimized to introduce point mutations, insertion mutations, and deletion mutations on constructs as large as 12 kb (including target gene and its vector).
- One-stop solutions: We offer comprehensive upstream and downstream services, including template DNA sequencing, de novo gene synthesis, Express Cloning into free expression vectors, customized vector construction, and protein expression and purification.
- Most Competitive Prices starting at $99/mutant

How to Submit DNA templates for Mutagenesis
The fastest, and usually the most cost-effective, way to get the mutant DNA constructs you need is to order Express Mutagenesis bundled with gene synthesis using our online quotation form.
- The complete sequence of the template including the target gene and its vector
- Mutation specifications
- Maps and antibiotic resistance of the template and destination vectors
- Recommended to send 4 μg of template DNA as the starting material. If the starting material is bacterial culture, please send the culture at sufficient amount.
