Dropprint Genomics (US)

March 2021 Immunai, a New York and Tel Aviv-based biotech company, announced its acquisition of Dropprint Genomics, a San Francisco-based single-cell genomics software company. Immunai is also expanding its executive leadership team and scientific advisory board with experts in immunology, single-cell technologies and machine learning. Both the acquisition and new hires will advance the company’s work in single cell functional genomics with the goal of better supporting discovery, prioritization, and development of new therapies and drug combinations. Dropprint Genomics, a Y Combinator-backed startup, has developed computational infrastructure to conduct single-cell sequencing at scale, developed proprietary methods for cost-effective processing of hundreds of patient samples, and built a large database of immune cells from autoimmune and cancer cohorts. These cells will be incorporated into Immunai’s Annotated Multi-omic Immune Cell Atlas (AMICA™), which is already the world’s largest single cell database. Immunai welcomes the Dropprint team, including co-founders Meena Subramaniam, PhD, and Rachel Gate, PhD, who have joined the Machine Learning and Computational Biology team at Immunai. This team brings deep experience in genomics and bioinformatics from the University of California, San Francisco. *
