Headquarters: San Francisco, CA
Mission Bio is a company of passionate people dedicated to solving complex biological problems with precision engineering, innovative biochemistry, and supported bioinformatics.
In 2014, the company was spun out of Adam Abate’s lab for high-throughput biology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Mission Bio’s precision genomics platform is based on the pioneering droplet microfluidics work of Abate and his team.
Our mission is to help researchers and clinicians unlock single-cell biology to enable the discovery, development, and delivery of precision medicine.
