Micropep is a French biotech firm developing the next generation of biological crop protection solutions based on the incredible potential of micropeptides; short natural peptide molecules that target and regulate plant genes and proteins.


The company’s proprietary discovery platform blends artificial intelligence, computer science, plant biology and peptide biochemistry to select and produce the best micropeptide candidates amongst billions. Its current pipeline targets resistant pathogens and weeds threatening major crops throughout the world.


The company was founded in 2016 as a spin-off of “LRSV”, a Plant Research Laboratory at Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and Toulouse University, a center of excellence in AgriTech. After an initial $5m Seed funding round in 2018, the company closed a $10m Series A in 2021 with prominent European and US investors.
