Description: 

Insects and spiders have the ability to produce natural silk fibers with remarkable properties including high tensile strength, elasticity, durability and softness.

Bolt Threads develops new technology to replicate this amazing silk production process sustainably on a very large scale.  New proteins are being engineered from natural silks by putting genes into yeast.
