We combine foundational innovations in microbiome science with industry leading bioinformatics and data integration to deliver actionable insights
On and within the earth, microbes astonish us with their survivability in even hostile environments.
Next generation low biomass DNA sequencing and data science reveal incredible genetic diversity in these anaerobic, saline, and superheated conditions. Biota commercializes data products based on a decade of academic work from the Earth Microbiome Project and the Deep Carbon Observatory.
By applying the earth’s / environmental microbes as ubiquitous sensors, tracking devices, and data libraries, Biota improves the economics and carbon impact of industrial processes in several large markets.
To deliver actionable results at commercial scale, Biota delivers an industry-leading combination of low biomass / low signal DNA/RNA recovery and industrial scale sample throughput.
With an operating scale of 100,000 samples a year, our advanced Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) laboratory workflow consistently detects microbes down to 50 genome equivalents, enabled by automated QC checkpoints, internal controls, and synthetic DNA spike-ins.
These innovations unlock multi-year time series analytics to discover hidden, causative genomic relationships while controlling for lab processing variability and operational changes from the commercial environment.
To deliver commercial results in a timely manner, Biota delivers domain-specific and production-ready algorithms that produce reliable conclusions with an explanatory foundation based on first principles science.
