Abstract: "Zymergen is a technology company unlocking the power of biology and applying it toward the development of novel materials. Using automation and machine learning, we engineer microbes to produce unique building blocks for electronics, including clear and flexible films for use in optical displays, sensors and printed circuits. This presentation will show why new materials are required to enable foldable displays, how Zymergen is addressing this opportunity and what performance has been achieved in our initial product developments."
