About Prime Discoveries

Prime Discoveries is The Microbiome Discovery Company. 

Our state-of-the-art technology platform integrates lab automation, machine learning, and advances in computational biology to accelerate discoveries. Our computational and scientific expertise provides the essential machinery for accelerating product development and crafting novel tests with superior accuracy. 

Partnering with us will enable companies in a wide variety of industries to launch microbiome tests, collect valuable information, perform comprehensive analysis and gain meaningful insights about the microbiome. Soil microbes are paramount to a healthy belowground ecosystem, playing vital roles in pathogen defense, nutrient cycling, and plant growth. Our soil health test is one of the first tests providing widespread analyses of microorganisms (bacteria, archaea and fungi) harbored by your soil. 

Founded by Eugene Joseph and Dr. Arun Manoharan our team is assembled from the world’s foremost biotech and genomics firms including Genentech, Dow Agrosciences, Columbia University, New York University, University of Michigan, University of California, Berkeley, Noble Research Institute and the Human and Earth Microbiome Project. We are advised by pioneers in the genomics / microbiome research arena such as Dr. George Church from Harvard University.
