Why is Berkeley Lights Stock Falling?

Some interesting things happen when you start telling people what stocks you’re invested in. They’ll start making assumptions.

5 Novel Therapies Using Synthetic Biology

The 1997 film “Gattaca” promised a future where humans would be free of disease and babies born on demand with the latest upgrades, including enhanced speed, intelligence, and beauty.

A List of 7 Proteomics Stocks For Investing in Proteins

We recently had the chance to present our take on nanotechnology investing to The Nanotechnology Industries Association, and it wasn’t the most compelling topic, at least when it comes to the success of nanomaterials.

Gene-Editing AgTech Startup for Growing Better Food

People often talk about food as the great unifier across cultures and peoples, even European football fans. But that’s really a load of bollocks, innit, bruv? In our current age of yin-yang dystopia, food itself can be divisive. One of Canada’s most well-known national treasures, poutine, has created internal strife over who owns the rights […]

What Do The Three Biggest Gene Editing Stocks Do?

Some great memes have been flying around lately about how the already ignorant Robinhood lot is becoming even more ignorant, eating up just about anything you’ll feed it.

Ginkgo Bioworks Scales Biology for Industrial Synbio

At the beginning of the month, we talked trash. Specifically, the piles of plastic that threaten to overwhelm many countries in the world. One long-term solution is to use biodegradable bioplastics made from natural renewable resources like algae. But that still leaves a legacy of water bottles, packaging, and Kardashian body parts that will be […]
