Founded by Berkeley PhDs who realized that our skills could be put to good use developing tools that can help with some of the world's biggest problems. Our founding team is made of Cal PhDs in soil microbial ecology, plant pathology, and electrical engineering and computer sciences. We are joined by a Cal PhD in mechanical engineering, a Haas MBA, and a Cornell undergrad. We are developing fully automated, in-field, DNA-based sensors for detection of airborne pathogens. The technology provides the missing pathogen-presence corner of the disease triangle and enables farmers to spray pesticides only when necessary.
