Genetic component assembly is key in the simulation and implementation of genetic circuits. Automating this process, thus accelerating prototyping, is a necessity. We present pyBrick-DNA, a software written in Python, that assembles components for the construction of genetic circuits. pyBrick-DNA ( is a user-friendly environment where scientists can select genetic sequences or input custom sequences to build genetic assemblies. All components are modularly fused to generate a ready-to-go single DNA fragment. It includes Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) and plant gene-editing components. Hence, pyBrick-DNA can generate a functional CRISPR construct composed of a single-guided RNA integrated with Cas9, promoters, and terminator elements. The outcome is a DNA sequence, along with a graphical representation, composed of user-selected genetic parts, ready to be synthesized and cloned in vivo. Moreover, the sequence can be exported as a GenBank file allowing its use with other synthetic biology tools.
