The Agile BioFoundry selected new collaborations from its joint funding opportunity with the National Science Foundation. The selected projects all directly contribute to the production of renewable biochemicals and biofuels and build foundational technologies critical for the decarbonization of the industrial and transportation sectors.
Agile BioFoundry Selects New Collaborations
Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the selection of 6 projects totaling over $5 million to conduct research and development needed to accelerate the U.S. biomanufacturing sector. As part of the DOE Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) Agile BioFoundry (ABF) consortium, these projects will leverage national laboratory capabilities to address challenges in biomanufacturing.
Agile BioFoundry, Lygos to Advance Machine Learning in Organic Acid Development
The Agile BioFoundry and Lygos, Inc. are joining forces to generate the largest multi-omics dataset for guiding the development of organic acids. Over the course of the project, scientists will produce more than 500,000 data points from a series of experiments. ABF is now using its artificial neural networks to train machine learning algorithms and provide actionable recommendations to help optimize strain performance, increase operational efficiencies and enhance production.
Agile BioFoundry Selects New Projects to Accelerate Biomanufacturing
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the selection of eight projects totaling over $5 million to conduct research and development needed to accelerate the US biomanufacturing sector. Part of the Agile BioFoundry (ABF) consortium, these projects will leverage National Laboratory capabilities to address challenges in biomanufacturing.
Agile BioFoundry Hosts Industry Day
The Agile BioFoundry (ABF) hosted its 2019 Industry Day on Oct. 4 in Emeryville, CA to showcase the ABF’s accomplishments in its first three years of operation. More than 35 industry representatives and ABF members came together to discuss the ABF’s unique capabilities as well as opportunities and mechanisms to collaborate on joint research efforts.
“This gave us the opportunity to introduce the ABF to members of industry and academia, including some who had not had the chance to hear about us before,” said Nathan Hillson, ABF PI.
