3: Choose your service of choice (Gene Synthesis, Subcloning Only or Mutagenesis) - Default is Gene Synthesis

4: Paste your sequence in the text box
5: If there are any invalid characters in your sequence, you can click the "Show" button to see the characters note: You can also see the length of the DNA bases

6: Invalid characters will be highlighted in red, please correct them in your sequence above

7: Select "Yes" if you would like to have your sequence optimized - Default is "No"
7.1: If "Yes," please indicate the specific species you would like your gene optimized for expression within (for e.g. E.Coli, Homo sapiens, Mus musculus, Nicotiana benthamiana, etc)
7.2: Please enter any restriction sites you would like us to avoid/maintain within your sequence (for e.g. Maintain-XhoI, NotI, BamHI Avoid-EcoRI, SpeI, EcoRV)
8: Select "Yes" if a stop codon is required - Default is "No"

9: Have you entered a Kozak sequence in the textbox above? If so, please select "Yes" - Default is "No"
9.1: If "Yes," please also include the sequence in this text box. note: Please inlude the Kozak sequence in both the main "Sequence" text box as well as the "Kozak Sequence" text box, or your quote will be innacurate

10: Please select your vector of choice from the dropdown menu - Default is pUC57-Amp
10.1: If you would like to submit your own vector, please select "OTHER - User Submitted" from the dropdown menu note: Please provide additional details if you submit your own vector (such as vector name, antibiotic resistance and growth conditions)

11: Indicate the restriction sites present within your sequence to be used for cloning (for e.g. 5' Site: NotI, 3' Site: XhoI) - Default is blunt-end cloning
12: Select the delivery amount of your gene from the dropdown - Default is 2-4 ug
13: Choose additional deliverable types, note that you will always be provided a lyophilized gene in addition to other type(s) you select note: Blunt-end cloning is only available for pUC and Bluescript vectors
