Current Projects

Mushroom Bioactive Compounds Exploration

Our work in the field of bioactive compounds goes beyond identification and characterization. We have set up a systematic process, starting from the selection of promising mushroom species, followed by rigorous in-vivo and in-vitro testing. After extraction using advanced solvent systems, the compounds undergo comprehensive profiling to determine their potential therapeutic properties. These findings hold promise for the development of innovative health and wellness products, pushing the boundaries of current pharmaceutical and nutraceutical offerings.

Plastic-Eating Mycelium & Mycoremediation

Our research is focused on utilizing fungi as ecological warriors to combat environmental pollution. We are harnessing the power of mycelium to degrade plastic waste, exploring the optimal conditions under which certain fungal species can accelerate the breakdown of plastic. Concurrently, our work in mycoremediation investigates the efficacy of various fungal species in removing or neutralizing pollutants and waste products in the environment.

Indoor & Outdoor Cultivation of Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms

At Ryzo Bioscience, we’re not just studying mushrooms—we’re also growing them. Our ongoing cultivation project involves both indoor and outdoor settings, allowing us to understand the diverse growth requirements and optimize the conditions for a variety of gourmet and medicinal mushroom species. From substrate selection to temperature and humidity control, we’re exploring every facet of mushroom cultivation to achieve the highest yield and quality. This research also aids in our understanding of the best practices for sustainable and scalable cultivation methods, providing valuable insights that can be shared with our clients and the broader mycology community.

Mycological Genetic Profiling

Our research on the genetic blueprint of various mushroom species is revealing the intricate connections between fungal genomes and their biological characteristics. We employ cutting-edge gene sequencing and analysis methods to uncover how specific gene clusters influence the growth patterns and bioactive compound production of mushrooms. This research will enable us to understand the underlying genetic mechanisms and pave the way for more targeted cultivation and use of these species.

Upcoming Project Pipeline

Fungal Gene Editing

As we embrace advancements in gene modification technologies such as CRISPR, our intention is to venture into an unexplored domain of mycology studies. Our goal involves examining and adjusting the genetic make-up of different fungi to gain a deeper understanding of their traits, amplify their advantageous properties, and potentially lessen their detrimental impacts. This venture represents a significant leap forward in mycology, holding the promise of groundbreaking discoveries.

AI Machine Learning in Mycological Research

Our impending initiative is geared towards utilizing the capabilities of artificial intelligence to transform our techniques in conducting genetic research in the realm of mycology. We intend to use machine learning algorithms to scrutinize vast genomic data sets, aiding in distinguishing patterns, associations, and genetic indicators that might be missed by conventional research methodologies.

This integration of AI into our research process will not only expedite our genomic discoveries but also greatly aid our Genome Engineering in Fungi project. The use of AI will assist in making accurate gene predictions, understanding gene functions, and even simulating the effects of gene modifications prior to actual genetic manipulation.
