Big Data Guru and Stanford Medical School Professor Atul Butte, co-founder of Numedii had his work recently profiled in the journal SCIENCE. As the article claims, the explosion of publicly available databases housing sequences, structures, and images allows life scientists to make fundamental discoveries without ever getting their hands “wet” at the lab bench. Science Journal calls it “dry biology” and I call it “digital pharma”, emphasizing what’s new, not what’s missing. We’re all big data.  Biology is just big data.  It’s an area of investment where all of us in the digital healthcare space at Claremont Creek Ventures are spending a lot of time. Numedii is only one of our portfolio stars who is making big waves in the expanding world of big data.
