Manus Bio

Cambridge (MA)

Manus Bio merges three disciplines (metabolic engineering, protein engineering, and systems biology) to rapidly and efficiently generate microbes which produce a variety of plant-based ingredients with much lower dependence on land and natural resources. It does this by recreating plant natural product pathways through microbial fermentation. Manus leverages its novel technology to provide a low-cost, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly source for many ingredients used in our daily lives.
