As a high throughput supplier of synthesized genes, Gen9 is at the forefront of the Synthetic Biology revolution.
Our customers use synthesized genes to program cells to make cellular factories; producing high value products in the end.
What can be constructed using Synthetic Biology?
The combination of synthetic biology and antibody engineering will allow rapid discovery of disease stabilizing antibodies and antibody-conjugates. This is also true for peptide screening, which can now be done rapidly and inexpensively by using degenerate gene libraries.
Many have the goal of reducing dependence on fossil fuels, and biofuel development is growing rapidly. Being able to turn cells into factories to inexpensively produce biofuels is one way that synthetic biology can significantly improve people’s lives.
Traditionally, the enzymes industry has taken advantage of the great diversity in natural enzymes for use in detergents, food processing and pulp and paper manufacturing. Synthetic Biology will allow industrial manufactures to not only tune known enzymes, but design enzymes that do not currently exist.
Increasing food production per acre of land is an important problem. Synthetic biology will bring down costs, help farmers use less pesticide and make plants more drought resistant.
