Gene Editing Solutions

Gene editing is biological re-programming. It is the process of making defined changes in DNA, the software of the cell. Modern genome editing tools focus on the ability to target unique sequences of DNA with a ‘cursor’ that hones in on the right part of the genome to label, modify, or break DNA in very specific places.

We are genome engineers with over 50 combined years of experience in this field. 

Lifengine was forged in Rochester, Minnesota based on a simple observation: Biological programming can solve the biggest challenges in the world. To empower researchers and innovators, we are developing user-friendly genome engineering solutions and advancing life science technologies. This includes developing more intuitive and safer tools for gene editing, as well as working with innovators who want to use gene editing to improve the world around is. 

At the core of our mission is to focus on responsible use of a gene editing to make the most specific, safest modification to DNA needed to make the biggest impact.
