One of the key goals of early genomics companies was to quickly transform into pharmaceutical concerns. The founders of these companies argued that thanks to the high-throughput genomics and bioinformatics tools that could be used to analyze huge stretches of DNA or masses of proteins, they would be able to identify completely novel targets and leap ahead of their competitors in the race to cure many diseases. Most of these companies set ...
