Applications for our technology

Flavours & Fragrances

Are you seeking to reproduce nature's complexity in your ingredients and products?

Shifting fully to sustainable sources

As consumers and regulators demand higher standards for sustainable sourcing and biogradability of flavour and fragrance molecules, industry must look to naturally-occuring metabolic pathways in all organism to recreate the smells and tastes we all know and love.
consumers expect brands to be leaders in sustainable change
consumers are willing to pay more for more sustainable products
Beyond catalogues and databanks

Discovering and designing enzymes to craft tastes and smells

Catalysts for nature's molecules
10x more
Terpene synthases
for common fragrances such as limonene and menthol
14x more
Hydroperoxide lyases
for the aroma of freshly cut grass
4x more
for sweet and savoury flavours
We systematically map the planet's genomes, proteins and in situ environmental and chemical conditions so that we can design better performing proteins using advanced deep learning techniques that can only be used on knowledge graphs.

Through our biodiscovery process, we help our partners draw on vastly more natural starting points to design process-ready enzymes that can match the experience of natural ingredients.

Partner with us to develop and license our novel enzymes.

The most comprehensive map of life

Functional prediction like never before

Our knowledge graph has been purpose-built from the ground up to capture and recreate the full complexities of 4 billion years of enzymatic reactions in nature.
Our approach requires no prior mechanistic insight, as our focus is on using contextual data to match enzyme candidates to your desired chemical reaction and process conditions.

Rooted in Access and Benefit Sharing

Future-proofed data collection

At the heart of our biodiscovery process is a our commitment to Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS). ABS is a cornerstone principle of the Convention on Biological Diversity and its Nagoya Protocol, which seeks to ensure fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilisation of genetic resources.

We're building a robust model for long term biodiversity protection through our global sampling partnerships. Each of our samples is collected in compliance with the Nagoya Protocol and with pre-negotiated permission to commercialise with our industry partners. Our aim is to create a world where industrial innovation protects, supports and revitalises our natural biodiversity.

Trio of icecap traversers


Ed Jackson, Darren Edwards and Dr Niall McCann each had accidents that left them with spinal cord injuries and a set of disabilities unique to them — their expedition will raise awareness of the powerful role that adventure and the outdoors can play in helping people recover their physical and mental health

Expeditions Map

We target our expeditions based on your requirements.

We know the exact geological and geochemical properties of the locations where various types of protein classes can be found. When you partner with us, we proactively find samples in places that we know will have a high hit rate for you.
