Case Studies

Finless Foods

Finless Foods is working on a novel way to produce environmentally-friendly, clean (i.e. toxin-free) lab grown fish meat and seafood products.

Business Challenges

  • Time to market is crucial to remain competitive
  • No in-house bioinformatics team

R&D Challenges

  • Finless Foods is doing R&D on a species that have not been well-studied and are not model organisms
  • The genome of one of the species they are working with was not available
  • They need to identify which genes are important for their R&D from tens of thousands of genes

Specific Technical Challenges

  • De novo sequencing and analysis requires bioinformatics expertise
  • Fish genomes often have highly-repetitive regions
  • Finless Foods scientists need to navigate genomic data and run automated analyses without running scripts
