Computational Tools to Aid discovery of Novel Biobased Materials. With dual-use nature of emerging biotechnology, biosecurity is a necessary component for this industry, particularly for the synthetic biology sector which produces new molecules to order. We have connected the challenges associated with enabling the responsible development of biotechnology and Battelle's unique position to provide an economically and technically sound solution. The result is the ThreatSEQ web service which is a web-deployed DNA screening platform for the detection and characterization of sequences of concern in genomic data. The ThreatSEQ web service is a first in kind commercial DNA screening solution that is highly accurate and cost effective. The service includes an advanced biocuration pipeline that reduces the burden on the synthesis provider to maintain effective biosecurity. The tool accomplishes the outcome by streamlining the review process through an industry-oriented user display interface.
