News Investment in Eagle Genomics Ltd.

OMRON VENTURES CO., LTD. (HQ: Minato-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Tomoko Inoue; hereinafter, “OVC”) is pleased to announce that it has made an investment in Eagle Genomics Ltd. (HQ: Cambridge, United Kingdom; CEO: Anthony Finbow; hereinafter, “Eagle Genomics”), which has developed an AI-augmented knowledge discovery platform, the e[datascientist]TM.

The microbiome is an ecosystem of microorganisms existing symbiotically in the bodies of humans, animals, and other organisms. Knowledge of the microbiome, and host-microbiome interactions in humans, animals and the environment is critical to solving for ‘One Health’ challenges in the Food and Nutrition, Beauty, and Personal Care, AgBio and BioPharma industries. However, the analysis of complex, multi-dimensional data, including microbiome and host-microbiome interactions, has previously been extremely challenging.

To overcome these challenges, Eagle Genomics has developed the e[datascientist]TM, powered by network science and multilayer hypergraph technology. It applies machine learning and AI to create and drive data-driven insight journeys that solve complex problems at scale. By networking multi-dimensional microbiome and other data, the e[datascientist] extracts invaluable data insights in minutes rather than months. It helps companies carry out science-led innovation for next-generation products by delivering robust, scientifically underpinned product claims.

Past or without Eagle Genomics:Tedious processes, scientists have to manage every steps themselves absorbing precious focus time that is better spent on research / e[datascientist]:Starting from a hypothesis, scientists can query a semantic data fabric to accelerate R&D and innovation by generating results and novel insights

Through its investment in Eagle Genomics, OVC is committed to accelerating developments related to the microbiome, and contributing to research and development in the extension of healthy lifespans and the treatment of disease.
