Genetic engineering has given us incredible things: life-saving medicines, stress-resistant and more nutritious crops, production methods that use less resources and don’t require the killing of animals. But this technology remains difficult to understand outside of big corporations and university labs. The result? People have come to question the good this technology can do for the world. We’re out to change that. Genetic engineering is our means to create products that improve your life.
We’re building products that help your body handle everything from everyday chemicals in alcohol and dairy to serious contaminants like radiation and lead. In so doing, we’re helping people understand the technology and feel it’s beneficial effects. And we’re doing it openly, so you can make your own informed decisions. It’s a new kind of genetic engineering: transparent, responsible, and built for you.
We don’t write “Proudly made with genetic engineering” on our packaging to sell more product. (Honestly, it might do the opposite.) We write it to bring attention to all the amazing things biology can do for the world, like:
Let’s celebrate a new wave of transparent, beneficial bioengineering.
We're not on this mission just because we're scientists. We're also musicians, artists, rugby-players, cooks, surfers, wood-workers, rock-climbers, and parents who care about enjoying life and doing good for the world at the same time.
