Avalo is nature’s innovation workshop. Through our interpretable AI-based platform, we advance natural crop evolution.Learn more
According to USAID, food production needs to increase by at least 60% to feed our growing global population by 2050.
Crop innovation for humanity’s sake.
Harvesting the Future of Food
The world around us is rapidly changing. We explore the biology in crops that matter most to ensure our food supply evolves as our climate changes.
New Plants for a Greener World
Our planet needs crop diversity to flourish. We work with partners to foster natural diversity and promote the creation of plant varieties tailored to different environments.
Better Tasting Crops that are Better for You
With predictive breeding, we can discover crops that are not only richer in flavor, but are also packed with the nutrients we need to thrive.
NASA predicts climate change will decrease maize crop yields by 24% within the next 10 years.
The Avalo Platform
Innovate at a Lower Cost...
What genes make rice resistant to frost, or potatoes more tolerant to drought? Through our platform, we’re able to identify causal genes for 100x less than the cost of the industry standard.
... and Accelerate Crop Development
The current standard of agricultural development is too slow to keep up with our rapidly changing climate. We cut through the noise of large data sets to find and act on genes of interest on a dramatically shorter timeline.
