Ferment TV | 03. From Model Organism to Polycultures

Ginkgo Bioworks,
2020 -

The 3rd episode of Ferment TV probes how moving beyond the myth of the “model organism” opens up new possibilities for industrial biotechnology.

Dr Sarah Richardson, founder and CEO of Microbyre, speaks with Natsai Audrey Chieza on how wild microbes and new metaphors can challenge the prevailing narratives and inequitable outcomes of the synthetic biology industry. Together they explore how the “wildtype organism” provides new conceptual and practical frameworks to better identify the technological context, scale-up and investment models that could enable a more equitable biotechnology industry to emerge.
