History

DNA Software (DNAS) was founded in year 2000 based upon the fundamental nucleic acid discoveries initially made by our President & CEO, Dr. John SantaLucia.

For over a decade, DNAS has integrated our world-leading expertise in nucleic acid thermodynamics into our suite of PCR design software. Our core technology has been further enhanced through a series of 9 NIH grants on studies ranging from PCR design, modified nucleotides, DNA kinetics, ThermoBLAST, Antisense design, and RNA 3D structure prediction. DNAS products have been licensed to leaders in pharma, biotech, agriculture, biodefense, regulatory agencies and academic institutions to help address the issues of false positives and complex multiplex design.

In addition to PCR design, DNA Software now offers qPCR analysis software to address the challenge of absolute quantification. qPCR CopyCount™ enables users to determine absolute DNA copy number down to a single copy of DNA using the fluorescence data from virtually any qPCR instrument (i.e. no special instrumentation is required). The software enables large scale data analysis and reduces associated costs by orders of magnitude. Applications of qPCR CopyCount include: gene expression, viral load, copy number variation, zygocity testing, non-invasive diagnostics, and Next Gen Sequencing.
