The Agile BioFoundry brings together a specialist team of scientists, engineers, and technical staff from eight of the U.S. Department of Energy’s national laboratories, with the aim that their collective skills, expertise, and experience lead to rapid innovation and growth in the biomanufacturing sector. The Vision? To unite and expand the capabilities of the national laboratories to develop a robust, agile biomanufacturing platform accessible to researchers across the private and public sectors. The Mission? To integrate industrially relevant production microbes, advanced tools for biological engineering and data analysis, and robust, scaled-up processes for integrated biomanufacturing.
