Pt-syn 1.0


Phaeodactylum tricornutum is one of the most developed platforms for algae research. The species is prized for its ability to produce high-value compounds, such as biofuels, medicines, and recombinant therapeutics.

With the continued development of genetic tools for the expression of transgenes and genomic editing, our capabilities with P. tricornutum become endless.

Photosynthetic bio-factories, the future of synthetic biology.
