Products From the Ocean for the Planet
The oceans contain an untapped wealth of molecular resources that exceeds that of terrestrial life in both quantity and bioactive novelty and equates to billions in therapeutic and industrial market opportunities.
Leveraging our probiotic engineering platform technology, we are simultaneously mining the genomes of previously unculturable microbes from coral reefs and other marine ecosystems to create a vast portfolio of high-value natural products to license to pharmaceutical and industrial partners.
Lucrative market opportunities to diversify coastal economies. Our areas of focus include:
Our First-to-Market Natural Product: PolyBlue
PolyBlue is a highly functional and tailorable sargassum-derived biopolymer that is a sustainable and cost-competitive replacement for petroleum-based plastics.
