What we do

We are exploring the untapped resources of wildlife microbiomes world-wide, using our technology & expertise to create the first-ever Wild Microbiome Database. 


Why we do it

To unveil a whole range of scientific knowledge, foster human health and biodiversity conservation research, and to tackle some of the world's most pressing challenges.



​Our collection experts travel world-wide, to find some of the most unique wild animal species on  Earth. Wherever biodiversity thrives – we are there.



We use our experience and honed field skills to track target species in their natural habitats.  With our specialized collection kits, we collect fresh wild-species’ gut-microbiomes, using non-invasive methods only.



Our field researchers document all relevant data on-site using our specially created mobile app. Critical information such as host health, collection process and habitats is then automatically synced to the database. 


Back in the lab, our biologists extract and sequence microbial DNA from the samples collected in the wild, using next generation sequencing and other cutting-edge technologies.

and Building

The result is the first-of-its kind comprehensive wildlife microbiome database - ready and available to facilitate major scientific discoveries.
