"Recent advances allowing for the better understanding of the ways in which living DNA creates the materials of life have opened remarkable new possibilities in materials science and chemical engineering. According to physicist Freeman Dyson, “The ability to design and create new forms of life marks a turning point in the history of our species and our planet.”

 These advances also mark an economic turning point, creating a market vision of synthetic biology life forms and life processes tailored to produce specific substances. The desired yield of such substances as biofuels can be measured in millions of tons, whereas pharmaceuticals can be measured in grams or milligrams. The door that is opening is likely to affect important markets for decades. Intense research and development continues to be both privately and publicly funded, but the work has emphatically moved out of the laboratory and into the marketplace. Major corporations are putting new intellectual properties to work in new factories in the U.S. and abroad. The players on this new field include new companies that come directly out of university research riding large holdings of intellectual property and established multinational giants that have the networks necessary to distribute and market the new materials. Between these two ends of the spectrum, companies are emerging that can intermediately supply the substances and services that bridge the gaps. The result is intricate patterns of interconnection between layers of the new supply chains. Acquisitions up and down these supply chains are frequent, as capital is freely available due to the obvious potential. This document examines 10 of the top companies in the field and discusses their positions in these complex patterns of supply and demand, as well as their investments and alliances. The chosen companies have effectively positioned themselves to connect the ends of the chain from the specialized tools and materials end or acquired the ability to make the most effective use of these tools and materials. This Research selected 10 companies that deserve recognition as leaders in the industry. Some are large established multinationals that have embraced the new technology. Others are startup pioneers that grow directly out of the research and development process. They are: Life TechnologiesDNA2.0OrigeneSynthetic GenomicsDuPontPfizerNovozymesAmrys BiotechnologiesScarab GenomicsBritish PetroleumAny top 10 list has subjective elements, and thus five other companies are profiled in less detail....."
