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.
