Biome Makers and its technology WineSeq are defined as "a revolution in the wine industry" thanks to the analysis of the microorganisms of the vineyard soil. The WineSeq genetic analysis contributes to reducing risks and preventing possible diseases in the vineyard or contaminants in the fermentation. In addition, it can enhance the improvement of wine quality. Founded in San Francisco, Biome Makers brings innovative character, great potential for growth and international dimension.
WineSeq is an innovative technology to achieve a sustainable control of grapevine trunk diseases as Alberto Acedo explains today for the project COST Action no. FA1303 Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Today, we are at the meeting from the COST Action FA1303 project, "Sustainable Control of Grapevine Trunk Diseases". The Meeting is celebrated at Biotechnical Faculty, in Ljubljana, Slovenia, today 23rd and 24th February.
Grapevine trunk diseases are the most destructive diseases of vineyards. There are no highly effective treatments available to control this kind of diseases. It is a must to develop sustainable alternatives and coordinate strategies for innovative disease management.
As manaGTD explains: "The goal of this Action would be to develop a network of European expertise to improve understanding of grapevine trunk diseases by acquiring knowledge on occurrence of pathogens, vine-pathogen interaction, ecology of wood-inhabiting microorganisms, and to develop new management protocols and biocontrol approaches."
Alberto Acedo, CO-Founder of Biome Makers, talks about Microbial Ecology and WineSeq as a vine helth microbiome diagnostic tool. Thanks to the WineSeq Community, the largest global community for Wine Microbiology, you can better know all the microorganisms related to winemaking processes.

"Microbial-based solutions, which are formulated from microbes, offer multiple benefits to crops. [...] Healthy soils are critical for global food production and provide a range of environmental services."
Allafrica talks about us and microbes in the agri-food sector in this interesting article: "Africa: Why Microbes Are Key to Solving Africa's Food Security Crisis".
Microbes (fungi, bacteria) are microscopic microorganisms that are continually interacting with the soil and plants. That is why microbial solutions that are formulated from microbes offer many benefits to crops and allow ecosystem balance. In addition, they allow the agro-food industry to achieve protection against pests, drought and other extreme weather-related situations.
Microbial solutions for agriculture are essencial in agri-food in the developed world. (As Allafrica informs, the market for these products is valued at $2.3 billion globally). Unfortunately, agriculture in Africa does not have the technological and innovative resources that are now in operation in developed countries.
The WineSeq technology, developed by Biome Makers, can be easily implemented in any country and, through simple soil sampling, detects the entire microbial community and offers recommendations on how to improve the quality and performance of the vineyards.
Thanks to this 100% innovative technology, Biome Makers is in first position as an innovative startup at the US AgFunder Awards.
Biome Makers has been awarded as the most innovative startup in the AgFunder Innovation Awards 2016, that has just been announced.
