64-x is a biotechnology company that is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts that was founded by Alexis Rovner, George Church, Jeffrey Way, and Pamela Silver in 2017. The company is using synthetic biology and genetic engineering to create microbes capable of performing economically valuable functions such as manufacturing a desired compound (biomanufacturing), removing/adding specific compounds to or from the organisms surrounding environment (bioremediation), or performing functions that improve human health.

The company has developed a platform that is capable of designing and conducting experiments on microorganisms in order to perform specific functions. They are able to make organism operate within foreign and otherwise dangerous or deadly environments, and to carry out new functions once there.
