Metabolic Modeling

Our goal

We create the tools necessary to predict biological behavior, so as to unlock the full potential of bioengineering. To this end, we combine machine learning, synthetic biology and automation with mathematical modeling. We use these tools to enable the production of renewable biofuels and bioproducts, and combat climate change
