Our mission


At DeepTrait, we harness the power of artificial intelligence to address the most fundamental questions of food supply, healthcare, and life itself.

Our technology opens new ground for breeding better plants and livestock, designing novel drugs, improving health diagnostics and treatment plans. 



DeepTrait approach relies on the unique, proprietary deep neural network architectures and training practices capable of working with full genomes of billions of base pair long, understanding genetic patterns and revealing hidden genomic structures.

Next-generation Markers


DeepTrait next-generation markers (NGM) is an artificial intelligence technology for learning perfect genetic markers by analyzing genomic data.

It uses full genome sequences, contigs, or long reads with contrast phenotypes as an input and outputs unique k-mers.

These k-mers are the next-generation genetic markers. They highlight the genetic mechanisms of the origin, control, or suppression of the trait.
