Synthetic biology gives us the ability to read, write and reinvent genetic code. Giving humankind an entirely new set of tools to combat planetary issues in sustainability, medicine, agriculture and more. Forest City SynBio provides synthetic biology startups the resources, facilities and network they need to turn London, Ontario into a global hub for synbio innovation.

in 2021, the world

is banking on synbio. 

In 2020, synthetic biology projects saw $7.8 billion in capital investments and

2021 is predicted to be a record year for synthetic biology investment. The first quarter of 2021 more than quadrupled Q1 records for synbio investment

set in 2020 and is already ten times higher than Q1 investments from only

four years ago.


At this rate, the global economic impact of synbio is expected

to be worth 2 to 4 trillion dollars by 2030 (McKinsey Global Institute, The Bio Revolution 2020).
