CD Biosynsis is committed to working with our customers to develop insects as the next generation of synthetic biology chassis by integrating entomology and synthetic biology. We are successively building a large insect knowledge base to facilitate the development of synthetic biology tools and promote the exploration of the synthetic potential of insects.
Although synthetic biology is often built on laboratory organisms and well-known species, such as bacteria and fungi, these organisms are sometimes not ideal chassis. Therefore, the development of new chassis capable of exploiting the advanced functions and applications of different species is required to further expand the potential of synthetic biology. As the largest group in the phylum Arthropoda, insects are the most diverse group of animals. They can be found in virtually all environments. With the rapid development of entomology and technologies such as genetic engineering, insects are expected to become the next generation of synthetic biology chassis. Insects will bring new blood into the development of synthetic biology and open up more possibilities for biotechnology, industry, agriculture, biomanufacturing and medical applications.
CD Biosynsis has extensive experience in developing synthetic biology chassis. Our scientists are committed to deepening their understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological properties of insects to determine their value as synthetic biology chassis. We focus our attention on the development of promising research tools for entomology and powerful enabling technologies for synthetic biology to help our customers broadly expand the potential applications of insects. Our technology platform and toolbox will be continuously updated.

CD Biosynsis is committed to harnessing the power of synthetic biology to unlock the potential of insect applications across a wide range of industries. At present, silkworm (Bombyx mori), mosquitoes, honeybees, butterflies, moths, fireflies, and Dactylopius coccus are our key concerns. We combine the properties and applications of insects with advanced technologies in synthetic biology to help our customers discover new possibilities for model and non-model insects as the next generation of synthetic biology chassis.
CD Biosynsis has been continuously expanding our synthetic biology toolbox and keeping our knowledge and skills current. We provide full support for our customers' innovations in synthetic biology.
