From plastics to clothing, we depend on materials derived from petroleum. But how do we create the next generation of materials that perform even better than current options without destroying the environment?

Zymergen CEO Joshua Hoffman joins Azeem Azhar to explore how the precision biochemistry of genetically engineered microbes is opening up new pathways for creating a new generation of high-performance, environmentally sustainable materials for the 21st Century.

They also discuss:

  • The transformative implications for the stagnant $3 trillion materials industry.
  • Engineering skin products that don’t pose a threat to the environment.
  • The value of “productive friction,” when biologists and software engineers collaborate.
