Difference Between BioTech & TechBio

Omri Amirav-Drory, Ph.D. · @omri_drory · Apr 2022

Tech bio is driven mainly by three forces:

  • Biology is getting digitized with technologies like DNA sequencing and DNA synthesis.
  • Now, because biology is being digitized, you can use computational tools and emerging machine learning/AI tools to make sense of the data.
  • We’re moving from a world where people are pipetting manually in the lab to now doing high-throughput automation at scale. That really helps create the new categories of companies that go through the design/build/test cycle more rapidly, creating products faster and looking more like tech companies than bio companies.

Biology is the most advanced technology on earth. It’s a nanotechnology that actually works. It’s been around for at least 4 billion years. And it scales.
