COPENHAGEN / BOSTON - Biotech startup Octarine Bio and cell programming platform Ginkgo Bioworks have signed an agreement to work together to produce natural dyes for the textile industry.

The partnership will initially focus on engineering a strain for producing violacein, a naturally-occurring deep purple pigment, and its derivatives - green, blue and purple pigments.

Bacterial violacein is commonly used to dye jacquard rayon, pure rayon and silk, but is very difficult to extract and purify.
