EpiBiome

EpiBiome, Inc. is a precision microbiome engineering company based in San Francisco, California. It's mission is to employ a genomics approach to understand complex microbial communities and deploy bacterial viruses known as bacteriophages to specifically eliminate problematic bacteria while leaving the rest of the community intact. The company’s first product is a phage cocktail that is applied directly to the teats of dairy cattle after milking to prevent mastitis. Utilizing nature’s form of bacterial control, this product will address the growing public health concern over the use of antibiotics on the farm while providing dairy producers with a more effective and socially responsible alternative to control mastitis.
