Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Pluton Biosciences researches and mines beneficial microbes in the soil for use in sustainable bioproducts across a variety of industries, including carbon sequestration, agriculture, pharmaceutical, and bioremediation.

Pluton extracts natural resources from the earth. But the resource they seek is not oil or gas, gold or silver, or even copper or nickel. Their targeted discovery platform “mines”​ microbes from the soil – the bacteria, fungi and viruses that live in and all around us.

Pluton’s Micromining platform targets new microbial solutions quickly and inexpensively, speeding the introduction of novel natural products through the research and development pipeline to market.
