As a founder of one of the companies mentioned (Ginkgo BioWorks), I have to say this is actually a very nice outline of the industry. It's not clear yet if there's enough of a market for individual services to be broken out and put in the "synbio cloud". Not even clear if there is enough of a market for platforms like Ginkgo that deliver a whole organism to spec vs application-focused companies. Early days, but it's a great field for those interested in getting out of the iphone app rat-race (no offense to the author). We hire lots of programmers.
