Synthetic Biology Is About to Disrupt Your Industry
Boston Consulting Group, 2022
Synthetic biology may disrupt most industries because it can lower costs and enhance sustainability.
Synthetic biology will soon improve or even completely supplant most industrial processes and products in use today. Synthetic biologists can modify microorganisms to churn out any protein they like, and can harness metabolic processes in vitro. These microorganisms generate less waste than current methods, can be grown indefinitely on site, and can release manufacturers from the constraint of relying on expensive or difficult to procure raw materials. If you make or use products such as textiles, drugs, chemicals or foods, synthetic biology will impact your life. Now is a great time to start learning about this revolution and prepare for it.

Syn-Bio Is the Ultimate Hack
Molecular and genetic manipulation of materials heralds a technology revolution that rivals AI Synthetic biology – syn-bio – combines engineering, biochemistry and computer sciences to create human-designed biological systems, processes and organisms. Synthetic biology promises to release manufacturers from thorny supply chain issues – they can create needed proteins and metabolic processes in the lab […]
