BioBits - The Central Dogma

The BioBits™ cell-free system was developed by a group of synthetic biologists to help students learn biology by doing biology.  Learn about DNA and how it makes proteins by making your own fluorescent proteins and more! BioBits™ reactions are easy to set up, user-friendly, and inexpensive, making it possible to do molecular and synthetic biology anywhere.
