About Joyn Bio
Joyn Bio is a joint venture between Ginkgo Bioworks and Leaps by Bayer, founded to solve the urgent agriculture challenges threatening our global food supply and environmental health using the combination of synthetic biology and beneficial microbes.
With our scientifically rigorous approach and microbe engineering platform, we are developing sustainable ag biologicals for crop protection and fertility that meet or exceed the performance of their chemical counterparts. Our first product is an engineered microbe that enables cereal crops like corn, wheat, and rice to convert nitrogen from the air into a form they can use, significantly reducing the environmental impact of agriculture's reliance on chemical fertilizers.
