Today, many products we know, use and consume are produced by biological systems — from medicines to nutritional products to chemicals. Until now, many companies have not had an ability to examine these production systems at a deep, genomic level. At SGI, we are applying our world-class tools, capabilities, intellectual property and know-how to evaluate and optimize current production systems with a goal of driving down cost, increasing quality and decreasing production variability. By engineering and optimizing both the cell specific productivity of these organisms as well as the production process, we can help innovators reimagine today’s paradigm in bio-based production.
SGI has extensive expertise in taking production systems and optimizing them for their current purpose. In addition, in parallel with our biodiscovery efforts, we are developing novel hosts with the goal of achieving a step change improvement in production costs and quality. These hosts will also open up opportunities for novel, sustainable solutions. Many products are currently sitting on the shelves of R&D labs because traditional hosts made producing those products technical unfeasible or cost prohibitive.
SGI is revolutionizing bio-based production and unlocking forgotten and yet-to-be-discovered products.
