It has come to our attention speculations that Abstergo is obtaining genetic code know as DNA without consent of its owner. There has also been talk that we are building a secret DNA library without public notification or consent.
This is all false information; we at Abstergo adhere to strict rules and only obtain DNA or any other genetic information through extensive contracts that are signed willing by our generous volunteers. Depending on our work and the contract signed by our volunteer, we dispose of any genetic information obtained during testing once we are finished. We thank you for your patients while we sort this out, for more information please call our public relations desk.
Ever wonder where the ideas for inventions come from? How something like Velcro came to be or why you can read some computer screens in the sun and not others? The answer is closer than you think. Biomimicry is the study of nature for new ideas on how to solve human problems.
For example Velcro came about by studying burrs and how they stuck to fur and other materials. Being able to read a screen in the sun comes from looking at how light is reflected off butterfly wings.
Biomimicry even helped created the animus. By studying birds and how they migrate we were able to discover the ability of recalling ancestral memories to relive historical events. The next time you go outside, Abstergo wants you to remember that what you’re looking at might be the next great invention.
With the announcement of a-OS 4.0, Abstergo has been fielding a number of questions from the public, but the most common is why a company with a main focus on pharmaceutical development needs to explore the past in such great detail with the Animus.
Abstergo is committed to solving the toughest riddles in the medical community, with the most critical focus on eliminating antibiotic-resistant bacteria and super viruses. We know that rapid DNA mutations within these types of bacteria and viruses are what cause them to be resistant to pharmaceutical treatment, and that finding a way to stop these mutations from occurring will be the key to eliminating them. Our scientists believe that uncovering the source of a particular virus and tracking its progress throughout history will allow us to map its mutations and discover a pattern or common occurrence. By tracking more than one at a time, we can see if there is a similar pattern that spreads across all mutations. With the Animus, not only can we truly see history as it unfolds, but also retrieve accurate, first-hand data of the progress of human diseases.
Abstergo’s ultimate goal, however, is to develop a nanobot that can be administered to a patient orally in a pill. Once in the patient’s system, it will be able to identify, track, study, and destroy any infection from a common cold to cancer!
