We believe the 21st century will be biology-driven, more than ever, where the promise of precision medicine and a biology-led industrial revolution hinges on the ability to reduce the complex interconnections of large, multi-omic data sets into useful biological information, services and products. We believe that this will ultimately lead to a sizeable market opportunity, better and cost-effective healthcare, while also addressing large social challenges such as a sustainable food supply chain.
Omics [ō-miks]: Refers to a field of study in biology ending in -omics (such as genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, microbiomics, etc.) in a cell, organ, or organism.
