Librede is one of four companies with a cannabinoid biosynthesis patent disclosing synthesizing cannabinoids in microorganisms from sugars. On January 15, Lygos acquired Librede to accelerate their production of cannabinoids for consumer, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical products.
Lygos is a biosynthetics company focused on creating high-value molecules from low-cost sugars using biological techniques.
