Basecamp Research is a London-based biotechnology company. We explore the most exciting, diverse, and extreme environments on our planet and sample these environments for microbial sequencing (metagenomics). We negotiate benefit-sharing agreements with the localities we go to, ensuring that our data is collected ethically and sustainably. Our in-house metagenomics & ML cloud pipeline generates taxonomic, genomic, and protein annotations that we embed into our knowledge graph together with geographic, geochemical, and environmental metadata.
