Basecamp Research - Our Story
Our company began when we went to one of the harshest, most remote places in Europe to pioneer entirely off-grid metagenomic DNA analysis. We founded Basecamp Research because we believe that nature is better at creating proteins than any AI or scientist in a lab.

We're building the largest, most sophisticated, entirely ethically sampled graph database of natural biodiversity in existence, because we believe that biodiversity is one of the most important and valuable assets of tomorrow.
What we're most proud of is our team. We're creating a workplace that's diverse, inclusive, and welcoming to everyone. Our team of 21 has 9 nationalities, and we speak 14 languages. 40% of us are women, and just under 50% holds a PhD. We have backgrounds ranging from diplomats and soil experts to cancer researchers.

We believe that nature already has the answers to our most pressing problems. We just have to go out and find them. If you feel the same, we'd love to hear from you.

Diginomica: "Tech bio pioneer Basecamp Research using graph technology to find ‘in silico’ protein breakthroughs"
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.
