I.e., a gene writer. They tend to make fairly short strands, sort them,
and then splice them for longer runs. But it would be a matter of a few

DNA is not proteins. Nucleic acids, ATGC,
A with T: the purine adenine (A) always pairs with the pyrimidine thymine (T)
C with G: the pyrimidine cytosine (C) always pairs with the purine guanine (G)
