DNA Synthesis at Ginkgo Bioworks
In 2017, Ginkgo Bioworks acquired Gen9, a leading DNA synthesis company. Our mission is to bring together under one roof all the tools necessary to make biology easier to engineer. Integrating the Gen9 BIOFAB into our foundry brings a unique expertise in assembling pathway-length synthetic DNA in-house, enabling us to improve our speed and capacity for building new organism designs.
