Gen 9 is powering the synthetic biology revolution.  Using our innovative technology, the BioFab® platform, we are transforming the way researchers approach gene synthesis.  In fact, Gen9 has produced the first ‘fab’ for synthetic biology – the BioFab® platform, which was chosen by “The Scientist” as the number 1 innovation of 2012.

As researchers’ understanding of gene sequence data increases, their ability to design and improve genes, pathways and organisms using synthetic biology techniques will increase, and Gen9 is there to help.   We are using our technology to make DNA that will be used by researchers all over the world to create "greener" chemicals, novel pharmaceuticals and cheaper biofuels.

Join Gen9 and become part of the synthetic  biology revolution.
