Directed Evolution

Products & Services


Organisms that degrade paper have evolved from organisms with the ability to degrade and assimilate wood.

Plastics and PFAS are new man-made materials. There hasn't been enough time for such organisms to evolve naturally.

Our Approach 

The Green Quorum project is aimed at improving our ability to recycle plastic and degrade forever chemicals by creating new organisms and enzymes that break down these pollutants.



Our patented approach uses image analysis to select for organisms with the ability to grow on plastic, PFAS, and other difficult to break down chemicals as a sole carbon source. Using directed evolution techniques we optimize these organisms and improve their performance.
