Our Vision
Our Vision

We responsibly apply synthetic biology to create valuable and innovative products that enable sustainable chemical production.

Why Yeast?
Man knows yeast, we know yeast, and commercial processes use yeast.
Man
Man

Man has used yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) to make bread and brew for over 5,000 years. Over the last 200 years it has served as one of the great scientific model organisms to study cellular processes. For this reason and others, the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome was the first genome ever sequenced. Today, yeast is arguably the most thoroughly characterized industrial micro-organism.

Commercially
Commercially

Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a workhorse, It is utilized extensively in large scale chemical production, industrial baking, and industrial brewing. It is about to become an even more important industrial organism.
