About Us

As pioneers in Precision Breeding, a proven technology addressing enduring challenges in animal health, we collaborate with farmers and ranchers worldwide. Our mission is to empower them in providing safe, abundant food by cultivating healthier animals through sustainable practices. As part of a team of experts dedicated to resolving global food security concerns, we recognize the urgency posed by rising populations, diminishing cropland, and shifting climates. Through our technology, we aspire to enhance global consumers' access to the meat and dairy products they cherish while enabling farmers to raise animals with reduced natural resource consumption.


Our Expertise

At Acceligen, our commitment extends beyond the welfare of animals, essential contributors to global sustenance. Leveraging gene editing technology, our proficiency in precisely imparting traits opens novel avenues for animal breeders to accelerate genetic enhancement. The introduction of distinctive and valuable genetics allows us to significantly reduce the development cycles associated with traditional selective breeding methods. Our endeavors have been extensively documented in over 300 peer-reviewed publications and have garnered widespread coverage in both scientific and consumer media outlets.
