4 billion years of protein evolution

We design protein products that nobody else can. Create better drugs, better food, and better diagnostics.
Understanding nature with AI

Design proteins that meet your most difficult requirements

We give R&D teams across pharma, therapeutics, and food & nutrition access to more diverse starting points, let them design proteins that weren't possible before, and test only the candidates most likely to succeed.

We have sampled biodiversity in the most extreme and exciting places on the planet. Work with the largest knowledge graph of natural biodiversity in existence.

Equitable benefit sharing

Turning biodiversity into an asset class

We are on a mission to turn biodiversity into an asset class, to make protecting biodiversity financially attractive.

We’ve teamed up with >40 local partners, from national parks to aquariums, creating a robust model for long term biodiversity protection. All our sampling is ethical and compliant with the Nagoya protocol.

We believe in the power of biology to change the world

We are Antarctic ice-divers and graph ML scientists. We'd love to meet you.
Combining data science & biology

Capturing complex function in silico

Our sampling partnerships give you access to entirely new genetic biodiversity. Our knowledge graph has 7x the information content of UniProt. For every metagenomic sample we take, we capture thousands of environmental, functional, and other datapoints.

This gives us the ability to computationally predict how proteins perform in the real world, like never before.

Once all the relevant environmental, geological, and chemical conditions are properly stored, as well as all the micro-ecology information, both Basecamp and its commercial customers can look at the DNA they want, to work out what organisms it came from in its full genomic context. This is all then complemented by Basecamp’s ML, which is how it ultimately delivers value.

The Basecamp team is working around the world to establish partnerships with local communities to gather and protect biological data, as well as to make it easier for synthetic biology companies to gain access to valuable genetic information which can help them develop new sustainable products.
