Ginkgo Bioworks, a company building a platform for cell programming and biosecurity, has successfully completed the gene therapy collaboration with Biogen announced in May 2021. The companies aimed to advance the industry standard for manufacturing recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based vectors. The collaboration achieved its goals of enhancing the AAV production titers of Biogen’s gene therapy manufacturing processes.

“We’re proud to work with industry-defining partners like Biogen to help global leaders in the biopharmaceutical industry redefine what’s possible in therapeutics discovery and manufacturing,” said Narendra Maheshri, VP Mammalian Engineering at Ginkgo Bioworks. “Significant improvements like these are the result of a platform-based approach to biological R&D. They are possible because our program leads work closely with our collaboration partners to take full advantage of the broad scale and deep sophistication of our highly-automated foundry and growing codebase.”
