the challenge
The effects of climate change are here.
Though the agricultural industry is developing new, more resilient crop strains in the face of climate change, it’s not fast enough.
Our rapidly warming planet will have the most dramatic repercussions on those who are already most vulnerable. Though the agricultural industry is developing new, more resilient crop strains in the face of climate change, it’s not fast enough.
Right now, new crop varieties can take over a decade to develop.
Genetic diversity in crops is at an all-time low.
The more we rely on a limited number of crops, the more susceptible our food supply is to major events such as war, disease, and climate change.
Since the 1900s, over 75% of our planet’s crop diversity has been lost. The more we rely on a limited number of crops, the more susceptible our food supply is to major events such as war, disease, and climate change.
Just four crops (wheat, corn, rice and soy) make up nearly two-thirds of the plant-based calories in the entire human diet.
And our current standards aren’t enough.
Finding the biological basis of traits such as drought tolerance, water-use efficiency, and nutrient density is as expensive as it is time-consuming.
Finding the biological basis of traits such as drought tolerance, water-use efficiency, and nutrient density is as expensive as it is time-consuming.
It costs over $20 million to find molecular targets for a single trait of interest.

We’re nature’s workshop.

At Avalo, our AI-based platform helps identify the biological origin of traits critical to the future of agriculture, and streamlines the most time consuming and expensive parts of crop development.
  1. Identify
    Through GDIP, a patented method, our AI identifies gene regions that are associated with traits of interest.
  2. Predict
    We create a diagnostic assay, where we predict performance of new crop varieties at a fraction of the cost as traditional methods.
  3. Create
    Using advanced predictive evolution and in silico optimization, we create new crop varieties.
  4. Learn
    Our AI learns more with every new project, letting us move faster and think bigger.

Solutions

Adaptation to address climate change

We discover the biology that makes plants resilient to climate change.

Boutique crops for a better future

Strawberries with rich flavor, broccoli with more iron. Collaborate with us to create new plant strains that are better tasting and better for you.
