How we help

Protein Engineers

Tap into our class-agnostic, protein design and discovery technologies, whether you work on gene editors, antimicrobial peptides, industrial enzymes or polymerases
Tap into 4 billion years of evolution

Propel your R&D with insights from the global proteome

Relying solely on directed evolution for protein engineering often falls short in terms of cost, time, throughput required, and ultimate success. However, lack of understanding of relationships between sequence, structure and function hampers elegant protein design.

Harnessing insights from our map of the global proteome, we’re learning the fundamental design principles of proteins to bid farewell to trial and error and replace it with efficient and informed protein engineering.

Let us help you harness data-driven insights for protein engineering.

Protein diversity mapped for machine learning

We're on a mission to map the entire global proteome to derive the most in-depth understanding of how proteins function. We're deriving these insights using graph machine learning algorithms on our representative dataset and layers of associated metadata.

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.
