At MetaMixis, we rapidly discover novel enzymes and pathways for use in biobased manufacturing. We do this by combining advances in automation, computation, and synthetic biology to screen millions of pieces of DNA from the environment to find new genes with valuable industrial capabilities. Our customers are chemicals producers or industrial biotechnology companies who are looking to scale a novel fermentative manufacturing process. These companies come to us because we can find in weeks what takes others years. Already, we’ve discovered genes that will power the production of next generation fuels and rubbers while partnering with some of the world’s largest companies.
