Unlocking the environmental microbiome to create a more transparent world.

The microbiome around us is the most complex, untapped dataset on Earth.

The microbiome is the trillions of interacting bacteria, fungi, algae and viruses that inhabit every inch of our world: our bodies, our stuff, our homes, and our cities. We make decisions every day based on the visible world around us. Yet much of our lives is shaped by what we cannot see.

Phylagen’s proprietary technology and machine learning analytics open the door to new insights across numerous applications.

Microbiomes cover everything and provide information about the provenance of objects and raw materials.

The environments we inhabit contain unique microbiomes that influence our health and well-being.

The distribution of microbiomes across time and space can be used to forecast future states and events.
