Who We Are
The ability to supply our planet adequate quantities of nutritious and healthy food is fundamental to survival of humanity.
Elo’s team of creative minds is dedicated to improving human health and wellness through food by working across the value chain, integrating technologies and enabling efficient food production systems.
An integrated array of technologies and broad expertise is critical to effectively address the complexity in food and agriculture.
We are invested in building an integrated ecosystem of tools and technologies that enable rapid innovation in a diverse array of crops.
Elo’s Knowledge Management system is designed to supplement its internal datasets with any publicly available resource to deploy its machine learning algorithms to gain deeper insights into genomes, genes and traits of value. Through this relational database, Elo derives multiscale biology-based insights on appropriate targets for genome optimization on any crop or genome of interest.
Through the robust ARCUS platform, Elo can address the needs of the consumers and the industry through faster validation and better targeting. Additionally, the ability of ARCUS to precisely target its cognate site on the genome with minimal offsite targeting allows for improvement of elite germplasm without posing any threat to its integrity- especially in the case of clonally propagated crops.
Team Elo is uniquely positioned to deliver ARCUS nucleases into protoplasts, calli, microspores and meristems of a diverse list of crop plants to generate novel traits. Elo’s advanced growth chambers have the capability of simulating a plethora of growth environments needed to advance optimized crops into their environments of scale i.e. field, production greenhouses or vertical farms.
Solutions Based on an Integrated Approach
In partnership with Cargill, Elo has an ongoing program to further reduce saturated fat in canola oil, putting Cargill at the forefront of a highly relevant innovation with direct impact on consumer health. A story published by Cargill on this program is available here.
Elo is engaged in multiple programs focused on improving the genetics, breeding practices and ultimately the economics of multiple natural alternatives to high-caloric or artificial sweeteners.
In collaboration with the Queensland University of Technology, Elo Life Systems-Australia is rapidly developing novel varieties of lentils and pulses with improved protein and nutritional profiles.
At Elo, our mission is too important for us to be distracted by life’s little problems. So we’ve developed a support system to keep us focused, energized, and at our best.
