Microbiome products for food and agriculture
To harness the potential of microbiomes
When microbes work together, they can be more effective than the sum of their individual contributions. They play critical roles in areas ranging from agriculture to human and animal health. Harnessing the potential of microbiomes will be imperative to a future of sustainability on a resource-limited planet.
Unique approach to improving microbiome function
Our proprietary discovery platform uses high-throughput DNA sequencing, selective enrichment and advanced informatics to identify microbial products with important commercial roles.
This approach is faster and less expensive than traditional approaches and uniquely identifies multi-microbial products which are often more effective than single microbe products.
Boost works with partners to discover and develop new products, that the partners can commercialize.
First applications are in food and agriculture
We are using our platform to generate unique data sets about agriculturally relevant microbiomes. Our first products will manage diseases of high-value crops.
In the field, our products will increase overall yield. Our products will extend the shelf-life of fruit and vegetables after harvest.
Boost works with partners to distribute products to farmers.
