Shave years off of Discovery with our lead candidate strains
Accelerate your next biological product using Ginkgo’s diverse strain library. Lead candidate strains emerging from in silico screening, in vitro testing and in planta assays address product applications across crop protection and nutrient use efficiency.
Crop Nutrient Use Efficiency
Nitrogen Fixing Microbes – Cereal Crops
We’ve identified more than 1,600 candidate nitrogen-fixing bacterial strains in silico. Our team is in the process of characterizing their activity in vitro and has validated a robust platform of in planta assays.
Nitrogen Fixing Microbes – Legumes
Our strain collection includes more than 1,000 wild type Bradyrhizobium strains isolated from soil samples taken from cropping regions across the US. An excellent starting point to identify more competitive and efficient nodulating strains that fix nitrogen for legumes.
Phosphate Solubilizing Microbes
We’ve characterized 128 spore-forming bacteria that solubilize phosphorus in vitro. We’ve identified more than 4,000 additional spore-forming strains that have pathways for phosphate solubilization through in silico analysis.
Plant Growth Regulators
Among our collection of 200,000+ strains, we’ve identified more than 75,000 candidate strains across five genera with a range of known plant growth-promoting modes of action, including phytohormone biosynthesis and abiotic stress tolerance.
Biologicals for carbon sequestration
Among our collection of 200,000+ strains, we’ve identified more than 75,000 candidate strains across five genera with a range of known plant growth-promoting and carbon sequestration-related modes of action, including diverse sugar metabolism and phytohormone biosynthesis.
We’ve selected and characterized a novel protein and validated activity in planta against root knot nematode and soybean cyst nematode. Use our end-to-end R&D platform to advance this candidate to commercial readiness, or discover other novel nematicidal biologicals.
Biofungicides – Row Crops
We’ve validated 3 Bacillus strains with activity against soybean sudden death syndrome (SDS) in planta. Additonally, we’ve validated 159 lead candidate strains with activity in vitro against other diseases affecting row crops, including Phytophthora spp., Rhizoctonia solani, or Alternaria solani.
