PARTNERING WITH NATURE

Using the power of biology, we have the potential to design, develop, and commercialize breakthrough products faster, cheaper, and greener than ever before.

Zymergen’s reconfigurable automation system

What makes our platform unique?

Building on advances in genomics, machine learning, and automation, Zymergen’s patented platform unlocks the greatest manufacturer of all: nature. It enables us to pinpoint useful molecules in nature’s vast catalog, produce them with biology, and deliver  them to market at the speed of the digital age.

The future of production

The result? High performance products made with less energy-intensive processes, reduced reliance on toxic chemicals, and moving away from the massive infrastructure of traditional manufacturing.

By partnering with nature, we can not only make better products, but also make a better world.
