Zymergen is not just changing the way stuff is made; we’re changing stuff itself.

Our story

Over the past century, the pace of industrial progress has declined as humans have exhausted the ways in which petrochemicals and traditional processes can be used to create new things. Instead, Zymergen uses biology as a source of new chemical building blocks that enable the development of novel products and materials. Importantly, we work at scale –– improving industrial economics while making new markets realizable.
To do this, Zymergen takes an atheoretic approach, leveraging machine learning to navigate the genomic search space to make discoveries far beyond the bounds of human intuition. This enables us to deliver material diversity and performance capabilities not previously possible, with applications across industries –– from agriculture, to chemicals and materials, to pharmaceuticals and more.

Our approach

icon red tbd

Zymergen integrates automation, machine learning, and genomics to rapidly accelerate the pace of scientific advancement. We treat the genome as a search space, leveraging machine learning to make discoveries far beyond the bounds of human intuition. In doing so, we deliver economic value, material diversity and performance capabilities not previously possible.
