About London DNA Foundry

Facilitating the production of biological products via systematic design and construction

Based at Imperial College, the London DNA Foundry is a core facility at SynbiCITE, the Innovation and Knowledge Centre for Synthetic Biology funded by UK Research Councils and InnovateUK

The prime objective of SynbiCITE is to accelerate and promote the commercial exploitation of synthetic biology research and technology. The London DNA Foundry provides a suite of state-of-the-art robotic equipment enabling automated end-to-end design, construction and validation of large gene constructs. It is designed to bridge the gap between academia and industry, accelerating developments in engineering biology technologies and allowing SynbiCITE’s partners to prototype new biologically-based chemicals, drugs and materials.

We ensure that the work of our academic and industrial partners gives innovative solutions to important societal challenges and does so ethically, legally and with the safety of society and the environment as a priority.
