Biosynthesis is the production of molecules by living organisms. Engineers have learned to harness these powerful biological systems to produce specific materials for humanity’s benefit. By engineering the instructions for materials’ production into the genetic code of simple organisms—e.g. bacteria, algae, yeast and other fungi—they can acquire the novel ability to produce molecules they usually wouldn’t. A cornerstone technology of the bio revolution.
