In Series A funding round, LabGenius has said that it has bagged more than $10 Million. Being a drug discovery firm, LabGenius uses robotic automation, synthetic biology, and artificial intelligence to find novel protein therapeutics. The firm has built a robot scientist, EVA, which is capable of conducting, designing, and learning from its own tests. Notably, the learning facet implies that EVA gets constantly cleverer as it untangles the genetic design rules that support life.
Obvious Ventures and Lux Capital led the Series A financing round, with input from Air Street Capital, Inovia Capital, Felicis Ventures, and existing financiers.
