Technology Description

Evodia is developing engineered microbes to convert inexpensive, renewable sugars into high-value specialty chemicals. Its platform technology will provide novel biosynthetic routes to compounds with established markets, and can be extended to produce novel compounds through simple genetic alterations in the host cell, all from a single inexpensive feedstock. Evodia's technology will therefore provide "greener" routes to established and novel products while lowering production costs.
