Engineering microbes for sustainable agriculture
We develop high-performing biologicals that will become a new class of sustainable agriculture solutions.
We aim to provide growers with new solutions to feed and nourish the world. By engineering crop-colonizing microbes, we can develop a new class of biologicals that are sustainable and reach unprecedented levels of performance and reliability.
Microbes have evolved alongside plants and contributed to their growth by helping them efficiently access nutrients and protect against pests and diseases. We are plant scientists, microbiologists, synthetic biologists, and data scientists looking to the plant microbiome to drive the development of better and more sustainable solutions for today’s farmers.
Our first challenge:
Significantly reducing agriculture’s reliance on synthetic nitrogen fertilizer
Our first product will be an engineered microbe that enables cereal crops like corn, wheat, and rice to convert nitrogen from the air into a form they can use to grow. This will significantly reduce the industry’s reliance on traditional chemical fertilizer, as well as greenhouse gases produced by agriculture.
We are plant scientists, microbiologists, synthetic biologists, and data scientists.
Our work leverages the synthetic biology leadership of Ginkgo Bioworks with Bayer’s deep knowledge and experience in crop science and ag biologicals.
We are building a company where scientists are expected to address challenging questions and innovate within a culture that encourages risk taking, embraces diversity, and is dedicated to the development of all team members.
It’s a place where expectations are high: we know that transformational challenges can be solved with the blend of cutting edge technology, dedication to our mission, and commitment to teamwork and collaboration. Scientists coming from more traditional corporate research will thrive with the opportunities for creativity and innovation at Joyn Bio. Academic researchers will find a remarkable technical platform and a unique opportunity to apply basic science to solve critical societal and commercial challenges. We need you to help us build tools and microbes to realize the biological potential of the plant microbiome.
We are building a company whose culture promotes inclusion and embraces how rewarding it is to work with scientists and engineers from all walks of life. It is the policy of Joyn Bio to provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants.
