The Futures issue.
Published by Gingko Bioworks, Grow sheds light on their work in synthetic biology—ie developing the ability to program living cells easily as you might a computer.
Although aimed primarily at shareholders, staff and others directly involved with the company, the magazine is more than an internal comms piece. This issue looks at xenotransplantation, GMO weed and lab-grown seafood among other synthetic futures.
It’s a rare magazine addressing science in an accessible manner; something we don’t see enough of. Longform written content is brought to life with beautiful illustration throughout.
