With constant advances both in the development of new enzymes (e.g., PaqCI, BsaI-HFv2 and BsmBI-v2) and research on maximizing enzyme functionality (e.g., ligase fidelity), NEB has become the industry leader in pushing the limits of Golden Gate Assembly (and related methods such as MoClo, GoldenBraid, Mobius Assembly and Loop Assembly). NEB has all the products and information you need to perform complex assemblies, as demonstrated with 35+ fragment assemblies exhibiting high efficiencies and >90% accuracy, along with low backgrounds.
Golden Gate Assembly Workflow for complex assemblies
Advances in ligase fidelity
Research at NEB has led to an increased understanding of ligase fidelity, including the development of a comprehensive method for profiling end-joining ligation fidelity in order to predict which overhangs have improved fidelity (1, 2). Their research has enabled complex fragment assemblies with high efficiencies and >90% accuracy. Use our Ligase Fidelity Tools to design high fidelity Golden Gate Assemblies under various experimental conditions.
Type IIS restriction enzymes for Golden Gate Assembly
NEB offers more Type IIS (i.e., recognize asymmetric DNA sequences and cleave outside of their recognition sequence) restriction enzymes than any other supplier, many of which are used in Golden Gate Assembly. NEB is pleased to offer: Esp3I (an isoschizomer of BsmBI that is recommended for use at 37°C and is supplied with CutSmart® Buffer), PaqCI (an AarI isoschizomer with a 7 basepair recognition sequence) and the improved BsaI-HFv2 and BsmBI-v2, which are optimized for Golden Gate Assembly.
For a limited time, try a sample of BsaI-HFv2 and see how it works for you!

New version of BsaI-HF that is optimized for Golden Gate Assembly.
New version of BsmBI that is optimized for Golden Gate Assembly.
New Type IIS restriction enzyme with 7 basepair recognition sequence (AarI isoschizomer).
Find out how Golden Gate Assembly can be used to quickly join multiple DNA fragments.
Type IIS restriction enzymes have both recognition and binding sites, but cut downstream of the recognition site, creating 4-base overhangs ideal for re-assembly. View a list of TypeIIS enzymes.
This video discusses Domestication, or the removal of Type IIS cut sites naturally occurring in vector or insert sequences, as it relates to Golden Gate Assembly.
This video demonstrates how to use the Golden Gate Assembly Tool, we will walk through selecting insert and plasmids, primer design to make amplicon inserts.
