Why are we developing the next-gen of biological pesticides

>$220 billion
Crop diseases cause >$220 billion in annual losses
Global warming
perpetuates crop disease outbreaks, some of which destroy >50% of staple crops
Toxic and ineffective
Antimicrobial pesticides are often ineffective and toxic for humans and the environment
> 90% of Americans
have dangerous pesticides in their bodies

We develop safe and effective in different environments bactericides and fungicides

We use targeted approaches, including bacteriophages - safe bacterial viruses
#1 Research Pipeline
Saving the US citrus industry
NOW
Huanglongbing, also known as citrus greening, is a devastating and incurable disease of citruses that is destroying the US citrus industry
>3.2
citrus price increase
>40%
decrease in orange production
in 10-15
years, the industry is likely to disappear
Our solution
We’re developing a safe, precise, and organic bacteriophage-based solution to cure citrus greening

#2 Pipeline
Platform technology to control fungal diseases in different environments
NOW
Fungal pathogens devastate agriculture
>80%
of crop diseases are caused by fungal organisms
Toxicity
Existing fungicides are often ineffective and can be toxic for humans and the environment
Advantages:
Uniphage’s fungicides are made to work in different environments
Our products have a significantly higher chance of in-field success. Long-term, this leads to more cost-efficient development and production of new solutions.

We're developing cutting-edge AI algorithms to enable our solutions to be more efficient
Our solution
Our technology will allow to faster develop bacteriophage-based solutions that will work in real-life settings even against rare bacterial pathogens
1 stage of technology development
Predict phage-host interactions
Advantages:
Quickly and precisely finding characterized phages that will work in-field, thus significantly reducing the chance of unsuccessful and expensive field trials
Using the same or very similar phages for a range of diseases, reducing regulatory hurdles
Little additional characterization is necessary
2 stage of technology development
Modify phage-host interactions
Advantages:
Precise change of desired phage characteristics to increase phage effectiveness and change hosts
