Making genetic engineering into a true engineering discipline

Genetically modifying cells — for example, to produce biologic drugs — is a costly, protracted, trial-and-error process because biology still lacks the design and modeling tools common in other engineering disciplines. Asimov offers a cloud-based computer-aided design platform for biology called Kernel that enables users to design and debug genetic systems; models like the Genetic Simulator that predict how those systems will behave; and stan­dard­ized biological parts,” such as customized Chinese hamster ovary that can produce specified antibodies and proteins. By integrating CAD, data-driven models, and synthetic biology tools, Asimov aims to provide drug designers with powerful abstrac­tions for specifying a cell’s performance.
