Fernanda do Amaral
Scientist at JoynBio


Fernanda Amaral is a Scientist of the nitrogen fixation program at Joyn Bio and has been working there since the beginning of 2021. She received her PhD from Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil in 2014. She then moved to the US as a Research Associate at the University of Missouri where she investigated the phenotypic contribution and molecular mechanisms driven by nitrogen fixing microbes in plants. “Joyn Bio is a joint venture between Ginkgo Bioworks and Leaps by Bayer, founded to bring synthetic biology to the challenges facing sustainability in agriculture. Our first project is to engineer microbes that can provide plants with biological nitrogen fertilizer, decreasing the environmental impact of agriculture.”
