The Ann Arbor, Mich., company, based on PCR-alternative DNA amplification technology, was founded in 1998 by Vladimir Makarov and John Langmore. Rubicon also focuses on identifying SNPs — and new CEO Thomas Collet, who came from healthcare venture fund Tullis-Dickerson, says he hopes to target its SNP scoring technology toward applications in personalized medicine.
