Ginkgo Bioworks (NYSE:DNA) stock is on the move Tuesday after the company announced a continued partnership with Novo Nordisk (NYSE:NVO).

These two companies have been working together on the development of expression systems for pharmaceutical products. The pilot phase of that collaboration is complete and achieved its first milestone of extensive modification and testing of a microbial expression system.

With that success, the two companies will continue worth together in the development phase. This will see them combine their resources in an effort to create a more effective production process.

Jason Kelly, CEO and co-founder of Ginkgo Bioworks, said the following about the news:

“The next phase of this project will build on our existing microbial design, engineering, and phenotyping expertise while expanding Ginkgo’s capabilities in genome-scale design and engineering. We believe this work will enable us to support even more pharmaceutical products, helping to achieve better outcomes for patients.”
