Sc2.0 Resource Hub
The Synthetic Yeast Resource Hub hosts a number of resources to aid the international collaboration to build the world's first synthetic eukaryotic genome. It will also allow researchers to request Sc2.0 strains and plasmids from the Sc2.0 UK Genome Engineering Resource (SUGER).
The Sc2.0 project aims to replace the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome with a chemically synthesised alternative version. The synthetic sequence has been designed to incorporate several engineered features that will increase the stability of the genome whilst introducing new elements to aid future biological and biotechnological research. More information on the project can be found here.
SUGER is currently collecting and curating strains and plasmids from the international Sc2.0 consortium. Once synthetic yeast chromosomes are published, they will become available to be requested by the wider research community. For any enquiries regarding SUGER, please contact
This work is being done by the Ellis Lab and collaborators at The Centre for Synthetic Biology and Innovation (CSynBI) at Imperial College, working with researchers at The University of Edinburgh and the University of Cambridge. This work is supported by the BBSRC and the EPSRC.
The purpose of this website is two-fold: to assist any interested parties in utilising the synthetic yeast project, and to act as a centralised resource for those involved in the synthetic yeast project. Here you can:
Browse the wildtype and the published, designed synthetic sequences. Registered users will also be able to see non-published sequences.
