An update to the ‘tree of life’ has revealed a dominance of bacterial diversity in many ecosystems and extensive evolution in some branches of the tree. It also highlights how few organisms we have been able to cultivate for further investigation.
IBEX develops transformative technologies guided by the systemic wisdom of nature… the adaptive processes of its bacteria, fungi, plants, animals, organisms and ecosystems - which have allowed them to survive for 3.85 billion years on Earth.
The physical blueprints, chemical formulae, process descriptions, and ecosystem strategies observable in Nature are guides for our research and help us to develop products and processes which provide both sustainable solutions and economic advantages in the areas of Agriculture, Bio-Industry, Human Health, Environmental Remediation and Aquaculture.
We tap into Nature’s 3.8 billion year research and development and learn how these organisms have succeeded at continuously adapting to Earth’s diverse environments and energy sources. We then apply this knowledge to current environmental, economic, health and social challenges.
