Our Story

We believe that empowering researchers with the tools to quickly design and implement useful biological systems has the potential to revolutionize the field of biotechnology and bio-medicine.

Our story began over a decade ago when our team set out to rethink biology and develop a new approach to building biological systems with the help of computers.

This led to the first computer-generated synthetic genome and the founding of our ETH spin-off, Gigabases. Since then, we have been dedicated to supporting our partners in the development of innovative solutions in big data biology.

Our Platform

Our platform offers a wide range of products and services, including a vast collection of over 214 million protein structures, as well as computer-optimized expression plasmids designed using our AI-powered webtool.

Our DNA design technology is based on the latest advances in computer algorithms and big-data biology, making it possible to create useful proteins and translate them into ready-to-order DNA constructs.
