The emerging synthetic biology ecosystem: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Ginkgo BioWorks

January 22, 2017 |

Recently, Ginkgo BioWorks announced the launch of their next generation foundry, Bioworks2. With 125,000 square feet and an 6X expected increase in capacity compatred to BioWorks 1, Bioworks2 represents a step change in what is possible for organism design. The company, which has raised a monstrous amount of money in the past 18 months, is strategically focused on using biology to make an impact in markets including flavors and fragrance, cosmetics and personal care, and food and nutrition.

As Ginkgo itself notes, “biology is the most advanced manufacturing technology on the planet. Self-assembling, self-replicating, and self-repairing, biology builds renewably—from the molecular machines inside of cells to global ecosystems.

What’s up at Ginkgo BioWorks? CEO Jason Kelly gave this illuminating overview at ABLC Next 2016 in San Francisco.
