Ginkgo Bioworks

Ginkgo Bioworks is remixing biological code in new combinations with the goal of producing organisms with new and more effective properties to meet needs in sectors that include medicine, agriculture, food science, and biofuel. Within its four large-scale laboratories, aptly called foundries, Ginkgo engineers use automated technology, software, and a proprietary biological portfolio of organisms, named the Codebase, with the goal of developing precise, repeatable, and commercialized bioengineering results at scale. By automating and scaling the process of organism engineering, engineers are able to focus on the science behind organism design while achieving greater efficiency compared to standard laboratory procedures.
