RNA is one of the basic building blocks of life.
RNA facilitates virtually every process in all living organisms. Controlling RNA biology allows precise targeting of biological processes. Over the last two decades, a global effort has demonstrated the utility of manufactured RNAs to regulate biological processes, opening up a world of possibilities.
Key milestones IN RNA DEVELOPMENT include:
small-interfering RNAs (siRNAs) to stop disease in humans and animals
messenger RNAs (mRNAs) as highly effective vaccines to control infectious disease
double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs) in agriculture to controls pests, including insects, weeds and fungi, in a highly specific, environmentally friendly manner
Despite the flexibility, efficacy and specificity of RNA-based solutions, their broad market adoption has been stifled by the prohibitive cost of large-scale RNA production.
GreenLight Biosciences has developed a unique, proprietary Cell-Free Bioprocessing method to produce RNA. Our technology enables the cost effective and scalable deployment of RNA-based products across multiple industries, placing GreenLight Biosciences at the forefront of the RNA revolution.
