As the world faces growing demands for sustainable and efficient animal agriculture, one company is pioneering a new approach to improving animal health. BiomEdit Industries, a microbiome innovation startup based in Fishers, Indiana, is developing novel probiotics and bioactive compounds to promote animal health and tackle important problems in animal agriculture and food security.
Discovering and Designing Novel Probiotics and Microbially-derived Bioactives
At the core of BiomEdit’s innovative approach is a unique platform technology that combines high-throughput sequencing and data analytics to rapidly discover and screen novel probiotic species and bioactive molecules. With this approach, the company is able to identify and select the most promising candidates for further development and optimization.
One important area of focus for BiomEdit is the discovery and engineering of probiotics that can improve digestive health and prevent diseases in livestock animals. These probiotics are carefully selected and optimized to perform key functions such as breaking down complex feed components, optimizing nutrient uptake, and boosting immune function.
The company is also working on the development of microbially-derived bioactives, which can confer additional benefits to animal health. These include compounds with antimicrobial properties, immune-modulating molecules, and other beneficial metabolites.
Engineering Microbial Medicines to Address Unmet Needs in Animal Health
Another important area of innovation for BiomEdit is the development of microbial medicines that can address unmet needs in animal health. These engineered products are designed to go beyond the capabilities of traditional probiotics and offer targeted solutions to specific problems.
For example, BiomEdit is developing a microbial medicine for the prevention and treatment of bovine respiratory disease (BRD), a major problem in the beef industry. This product incorporates engineered immune-modulating proteins that can help prevent and treat BRD, while also reducing the need for antibiotics.
Contributing to Sustainable Animal Agriculture and Food Security
BiomEdit’s innovative approach to animal health has important implications for sustainable animal agriculture and food security. By reducing the need for antibiotics and other traditional treatments, the company’s probiotics and microbial medicines can help reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance and support the long-term sustainability of animal agriculture.
In addition, BiomEdit’s products can help improve animal health and productivity, which is critical for meeting growing demands for animal protein around the world. With a focus on innovation, efficiency, and sustainability, BiomEdit is positioned to play a crucial role in the future of animal agriculture.
