Collaborations with well-respected institutions, such as the University of Notre Dame, has accelerated and enabled a number of exciting breakthroughs in the laboratory. We are very thankful for the media coverage we receive, which helps us spread the word about recombinant spider silk, along with the Publication of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) peer-reviewed journal, which credibly confirms our proof-of-concept.

Highly Regarded Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) Publishes Kraig Biocraft Laboratories’ Scientific Breakthrough “Silkworms Transformed with Chimeric Silkworm/Spider Silk Genes Spin Composite Silk Fibers with Improved Mechanical Properties”.
