Creators of the Future
The industrial age was heralded as a new era of machines, and technology advanced at a tremendous rate. However, we are beginning to realize how life itself is more amazing than the most advanced machines we have ever produced. A new biological revolution is changing our world, just as the industrial revolution did over a hundred years ago.

"This is going to have a tremendous impact on our daily lives. I mean, we already know how microbes influence what we eat, how we dress, our healthcare, and now being able to understand or decipher their communication codes and understanding how they function with their structure of their communities. We're going to take the knowledge and even make better products for food, agriculture, enzymes, healthcare and so forth."
— Dr. Hunter-Cevera
