Our bit-GEM database is the leading resource for searchable and highly usable microbe genome sequences.

Drawing on nature’s most potent microbial resources, including samples from environments like soil, marine water, hot springs, mining sites, and other extreme conditions, our database contains over a billion gene sequences that cannot be obtained by any other method—and perhaps most importantly, are not available in any public database.

  • Large collection of extremophiles with potentially novel enzyme activities and functional requirements 
  • Unique, free-to-operate, patentable sequences 
  • Industry-wide applications, including healthcare, pharma, sustainability, food, materials, and chemicals
  • 1.5 billion and growing proprietary sequences currently in the database
  • 1 billion new sequences every year
  • ~60% from environmental samples

Let’s build better together.
