Synomics – Animal and Crop Health

Synomics is a spin-out of Precision Life. PrecisionLife established and incubated Synomics, building a team of highly experienced agriculture domain experts, and delivering proof of concept projects with major producers in the food industry. As in pharma and biotech, clinical trials and healthcare our combinatorial approach finds significantly more signal and actionable insights in smaller animal and crop datasets than existing methods.

The initial proof of concept work in animals and crops undertaken by PrecisionLife addressed complementary challenges to human health and disease biology. The advantage of animal and crop health is that whilst the genetics are simpler, more phenotypic data is availble as we often capture more data about a dairy cow than a patient, even in a hospital setting. Synomics enabled us to prove the value of combinatorial analytics in a different industry, with immediate quantifiable commercial benefits over existing approaches for genomic and multi-omic analysis.
