Austen Heinz is a scientist extraordinaire. He is the inventor of DNA Laser printing and co-founder and CEO of a startup called Cambrian Genomics. Cambrian Genomics makes the first hardware/systems for laser printing DNA. To put this in perspective: right now it costs $2.2 bn. to print human DNA. According to Austen, he found a way to bio-hack on the cheap, which means it could be offered to the masses instead of being concentrated in the hands of the rich. Sequencing costs are falling faster than Moore’s Law and thus more and more VC’s and startups show up in the field of BioTech.
