Molecular Assemblies is enabling a new era in biotechnology by developing a next generation DNA synthesis technology. The first generation DNA synthesis technology commercialized by the founders more than a quarter century ago has enabled "reading" the genome and our deepening understanding of how biology works, but is an impediment to "writing" new genomes to exploit biology’s potential to mitigate society's most pressing problems through development of carbon neutral fuels and plastics, advanced therapeutics with fewer side-effects and more nutritious crops which require fewer resources.
The hundreds of millions of dollars invested to circumvent the inherent problems of the chemical approach we commercialized a generation ago compel us to reunite to replace the existing chemistry by using nature’s own enzymatic tools to produce very long, high quality DNA strands quickly and efficiently, without the toxic waste produced by the current method.
