Over the past decade, the field of synthetic biology has witnessed several advancements. DNA / gene cloning is the field of synthetic biology which can be helpful to understand the effect of mutation on a particular gene. Many diseases that can be treated using artificial DNA synthesis, such as leukemia and sickle cell anemia, involving the replacement of defected gene. The pandemic has specifically resulted in enhanced research and development activities in the field of biotechnology. Recent technological advancements have led to development of novel DNA cloning kits and reagents, which are cost-effective, faster and more efficient than conventional methods.
