About Neochromosome
Neochromosome is a biotech startup whose disruptive chromosome synthesis and engineering technologies are changing the world of synthetic biology. Rather than piecemeal editing of an existing genome, Neo delivers entire chromosomes designed de novo to be modular and orthogonal to the host cell. Neo’s work has revolutionized the Design - Build - Deliver paradigm for biological engineering with a focus on higher eukaryotic cells for expression of commercially valuable biological pathways.

Neo’s team has highly unique experience building the world's first synthetic eukaryotic genome for the Sc2.0 project, and with the backing of Opentrons automation and engineering, is working to unlock the next generation of synthetic biology applications.
