Our Mission

We share the tools and systems to make more efficient and impactful discoveries.

Our Origins

Research is expensive, resource-intensive, and time-consuming. Labs need to improve “hit rates” for successful, novel discoveries, but many of the opportunities for advancement rely on technologies that do not directly overlap with genomics expertise. Even for labs with AI/ML capabilities, researchers spend time focusing on narrow topics that are not generalizable or scalable, requiring them to constantly “reinvent the wheel.” Between rising expectations, expanding timelines, and proliferation of scientific literature, extracting relevant and timely insights while running a lab is becoming increasingly challenging.  

So, we set out to build a solution. Starting in our lab at Duke University, we designed the tools needed to advance our research. We demonstrated that our platform accelerated hypothesis generation and unlocked unexpected insights that led to new ideas. It improved the quality, speed, and impact of research while minimizing waste and maximizing budget efficiency. Leveraging heuristics to advance discovery.

That was our “(H)eureka” moment, and we’re excited to share those tools with you!
