Genecis, a startup comprised of University of Toronto Scarborough graduates, "uses biology to convert organic waste into higher value materials," such as polyhydroxyalkanoates biopolymers used to produce 3D printing filaments, said founder and CEO Luna Yu. "This allows us to start developing our own synthetic biology platform, which rapidly creates new synthetic bacteria. These bacteria can be used to make better PHAs for 3D printing, and reprogrammed to make higher value materials used in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and nano-materials industries," Yu added.
