Design plasmids or linear strands of DNA for your organism in just one browser tab.
Start by quickly capturing your design intent, for example, a strong promoter driving your favorite gene followed by an eGFP tag. Sketch mode lets you add the sequence later. No need to sketch on the whiteboard anymore – just go straight to the browser and keep all information in one place.Try for free
Not all information is needed all of the time. Your insert traditionally takes up the least space in your plasmid map, but it may be the most important part in your design. With Genetic Constructor you can collapse the backbone into a single block and focus on your insert.Try for free
Genetic Constructor puts the power of NCBI and iGEM at your fingertips. Search for your favorite gene and explore the results. Drag and drop your final selection directly into your design. All annotations are maintained and converted to our convenient hierarchical structure.
Want to test a promoter library and a tag library with your favorite gene? With a regular sequence editor this would result in hundreds of files that you have to keep track of. With Genetic Constructor you can easily populate any block with a list of possible sequences. You continue to work with just one design, but you can easily preview any or all combinations of the possible alternatives.
Like all Autodesk products, Genetic Constructor is free for academics. During Beta Period it is also free for all individuals. After that we will offer a simple annual subscription. No complex tiers, no hidden costs.
Genetic Constructor uses modern web standards to give the best possible experience & security for our visitors. We support only Google Chrome on MacOS or Windows at this time. Support for other popular browsers is experimental - most features do work, but there are some known issues. Microsoft IE and Edge are not supported.

The combination of Autodesk design software with synthetic DNA makes genetic engineering faster, easier and cheaper. It really opens the door to the possibility that more of humanities needs - such as pharmaceuticals - can be satisfied by sustainable, living systems.
The Life Sciences group at Autodesk is dedicated to developing technology that accelerates scientific progress. We believe that this ambitious mission can only succeed through an open collaboration with our peers in academia and industry. We are committed to aggregating the best ideas and workflows from the life sciences and combining them with Autodesk's deep knowledge and experience delivering the most popular, successful engineering tools on the planet. Our team is composed of leading PhD scientists, experience designers and software developers. Together we are developing the next generation of molecular biology tools!
