To accelerate life science, we are building an “OS” that will help investigators design, execute, interpret, manage, and scale experiments, from wet lab assays to bioinformatics analyses, multiscale simulations, and interactive data visualizations. Our platform will supercharge biomedical scientists by providing investigators with approachable, integrated, scalable, and collaborative access to the sea of data, methods, and tools. By enabling scientists to focus on science, our platform will transform industry, academic, and government R&D. Furthermore, we will use our platform to address one of the grand challenges of biology, developing holistic mechanistic simulations of entire cells and tissues that explain phenotype from genotype.
