Gen9 is transforming synthetic biology by creating novel technologies to increase innovation within several industries including biopharmaceuticals, fine chemicals and bio-fuels.
Currently such genes are synthesized ‘one at a time’ resulting in high-cost low-capacity gene synthesis capabilities in the marketplace. Gen9 is building the first ‘fab’ for synthetic biology -- the BioFab® platform -- based on next generation gene synthesis technologies. The BioFab® platform was chosen by “The Scientist” as the #1 innovation of 2012.
