Ginkgo Bioworks designs custom microbes for customers across multiple markets. We build our foundries to scale the process of organism engineering using software and hardware automation. Organism engineers at Ginkgo learn from nature to develop new organisms that replace technology with biology.
Three major product sets right now.
CULTURED INGREDIENTS. Producing valuable ingredients via fermentation with engineered yeasts for perfumes, foods, cosmetics, and more.
STRAIN IMPROVEMENT. Where fermentation is already used in bioindustrial applications, organism engineering can improve efficiency and sustainability.
ENZYMES. Enzymes are used in applications from cheesemaking to pharmaceuticals to stonewashed jeans. We’re discovering better enzymes for more applications.
