About Us

Sestina Bio is creating a new platform for data-driven synthetic biology.

We are addressing some of the largest challenges of our time, harnessing the power of biology and data science to help sustainably feed, clothe, and treat the world’s population. Our approach is to integrate or invent new tools for genome editing, single cell biology, and machine learning to transform our ability to engineer and harness new biological functions.

Mission / Vision

Sestina’s mission is to develop a better way of making products the world needs. By building natural products in a way never done before, we’re designing a better future and making a healthier planet possible. And it’s all thanks to the incredible power of synthetic biology.
