Arzeda does work that sounds out of this world — or maybe straight out of science fiction. The company uses fermentation, the same process that gives us beer, to invent completely new proteins and materials, and it just raised another $3.2 million to support that work.

The funding is a follow-on to the company’s Series A round, which first raked in $12 million in July. Arzeda has now raised $15.2 million total. The new funds come from Universal Materials Incubator and Casdin Capital, which join OS Fund, Bioeconomy Capital, Sustainable Conversion Ventures and WRF Capital as investors in the company.
