Molecular Foundry

We use microbes found in nature that express a diversity of unique and previously untapped molecules to produce “building blocks” for materials.

Our initial focus is on triglycerides, or oils. Our microbes make these oils through fermentation.

Chemistry & Materials Science

By expanding the palette of available building blocks, we can then apply novel chemistries to create materials with desired physical properties.
