The Australian Research Council Center of Excellence in Synthetic Biology inks deal with Twist Bioscience 

September 22, 2022 |

In Australia, Twist Bioscience and the Australian Research Council (ARC) Center of Excellence in Synthetic Biology (CoESB) announced a partnership that will enable CoESB members and partners to order a wide range of Twist products that facilitate research and development.

Emily Leproust, CEO and co-founder of Twist Bioscience, said: “The partnership will provide researchers access to our industry leading DNA synthesis products. We gain access to the capabilities and availability of CoESB members to shape new products, while they are able to gain early access to upcoming products within Twist’s synthetic biology product program.”

“Synthetic biology will shape the future, and lead Australia towards a sustainable biobased economy,’ said Ian Paulsen, director of the CoESB Center. “We are tasked to design and build microbes that aim to turn agricultural waste into a vast array of sustainable products. Our engineered microbes aim to seed a vibrant new bio-based economy that will build on Australia’s agricultural strengths and propel us into the future.’

Paulsen also said that Twist Bioscience’s proprietary DNA manufacturing process, quality control and scale will play an increasingly important role in the development of new synthetic pathways, aiding in the development of novel organisms that will provide a cleaner and greener future.
