NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – DNAnexus said today that it has closed a $68 million Series F round of venture funding. Existing investors GV — formerly Google Ventures — Foresite Capital, TPG Biotech, WuXi NextCode, and Claremont Creek Ventures participated, while Innovatus Capital Partners provided both debt and equity financing.
Mountain View, California-based DNAnexus said that the new capital will support deployment of DNAnexus Apollo, a recently released platform for multi-omics and clinical data science exploration, analysis, and discovery.
"The financing enables further development of our translational research solutions, as well as continued growth in genomics with cloud-based solutions for research, clinical diagnostics, and clinical trials," CEO Richard Daly said in a statement. "The next wave of biomedical insights will be derived from cross-institutional collaborations that generate massive volumes of clinical and multi-omics data," he predicted.
DNAnexus last announced new investment in January 2018, when it closed a $58 million Series E round of venture capital. With the additional $68 million, the company has now raised about $208 million since 2009.
