TechCrunch: TeselaGen Is Building A Platform For Rapid Prototyping In Synthetic Biology
MARCH 10, 2014
“Our vision is about closing the design-build-test-and-evolve loop,” said CEO Mike Fero, who was a researcher at
Stanford focusing on protein localization and who was previously a vice president at a computational genomics company
called Neomorphics that was sold to Affymetrix in 2000. “We want to shorten the time frame it takes to get your
DNA built and run more experiments.”

TeselaGen Wins Bio-IT World's 2013 Best Practices Award
OCTOBER 22, 2013
"There are plenty of plaudits for organizations in the life sciences that change the industry’s conceptions of what
is possible, but one purpose of the Bio-IT World Best Practices Awards is to highlight those who refine those achievements
until the merely possible becomes truly practical. That is why Bio-IT World was pleased to award an honorable mention
at the 2013 Best Practices Awards to TeselaGen Biotechnology, a startup that spun out from the Berkeley Lab’s Joint
BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) in 2011, and Amgen for the development of TeselaGen: j5, an automated platform for designing
DNA assembly protocols. This new, cloud-based platform allows even small institutions to quickly find the most
cost-effective protocols for assembling scarless, multipart DNA."

TeselaGen To Accelerate Biotech Industry With J5
OCTOBER 1, 2012
TeselaGen has secured an exclusive license in all fields of use for the "j5" gene assembly software from Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory . TeselaGen prevailed with the strongest proposal to promote and leverage the
j5 technology for their rapid prototyping system for synthetic biology. Based on the idea that a forward engineering
approach needs to incorporate the utility of both biology and engineering in the quest for easier and faster ways
to build biomolecules, TeselaGen is expecting the j5 technology to play an important role in its software as a
service offering. The j5 software package, which has attracted users from more than 250 institutions worldwide
since it was made available last year, emerged from the Joint BioEnergy Institute, a Department of Energy research
center established in 2007 to pursue breakthroughs in the production of cellulosic biofuels. By building on j5
and adding modules for commercial users, TeselaGen Biotechnology, says it will significantly reduce the time and
cost involved with DNA synthesis and cloning, a multibillion-dollar market.
TeselaGen Wins NSF SBIR Award
JULY 1, 2012
TeselaGen Biotechnology has secured a National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation and Research grant to
pursue "A Synthetic Biology Design-Build-Test Platform for Automated Combinatorial DNA Assembly". The grant focuses

CEO Michael Fero "We decided to put the design principles of Synthetic Biology to the test, building our software
framework along lines that model the forward engineering approach, while not ignoring the special ability of biological
systems to design themselves through evolutionary mechanisms"
