SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Aperio Healthcare, Inc.

Based in Menlo Park, DNA 2.0 is a biotechnology company, developer of two platform technologies, the DNA-2-Go(TM) gene synthesis process and DeNovo Genes(TM), a protein engineering and sequence optimization technology. The firm's charter is to exploit the synergy between a highly efficient gene synthesis process and new protein optimization technologies.

"DNA 2.0 exists to simplify the steps between thinking of an experiment and doing it. We were impressed by Aperio's depth of knowledge and creativity. We believe their team is a perfect fit to help us with the creative strategy we needed to bring DNA 2.0 into the next phase by communicating both the complexity of our technology and the simplicity of our solutions," said Jeremy Minshull, Ph.D., President of DNA 2.0, Inc.

San Francisco-based Aperio Healthcare was launched in 2003 to serve the marketing communication needs of the emerging life sciences industry. "We knew from inception that we had the right blend of experience and capabilities to produce effective campaigns and target a newer breed of companies in the life sciences technology market," said Sylvia Ventura, Managing Director of Aperio Healthcare.

Our approach has been extremely well received, and we have seen terrific success this year. It just confirms that our offering is right on time."

The engagement with Aperio will include the development of the DNA 2.0 global corporate brand identity, and the promotional launch for DNA 2.0's two flagship products DNA-2-Go(TM) and DeNovo Genes(TM).
