By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

April 27, 2021 -- DNA Script and Moderna have announced a partnership to develop on-demand vaccines and therapeutics as part of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Nucleic Acids On-Demand World-Wide (NOW) program.

The initiative will make use of DNA Script's enzymatic synthesis platform, which generates high-fidelity nucleic acids without the use of hazardous chemical solvents, the company said. Moderna will use these acids to produce messenger RNA therapeutics and vaccines. DNA Script will receive up to $5 million from DARPA.
