SilicoLife is a biotech company operating at the interface of biology and computation. In the 5th BioData.pt Talks, a brief introduction to SilicoLife’s approach will be presented as well as details about SilicoLife’s experience as the promoters and managers of a very ambitious synthetic biology project - ShikiFactory100 - where AI, retrosynthesis and rapid prototyping join forces to produce +100 molecules of the shikimate pathway.
SilicoLife was founded in 2010 and designs optimized microorganisms and novel pathways for industrial biotechnology applications. Based on metabolic engineering and synthetic biology approaches shortens the development time and costs of new highly effective processes for the production of specific target compounds such as chemicals, food ingredients or biopolymers.
