BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Muse bio, a privately-held company leading the development of next-generation genome engineering capabilities, today announced the completion of a $23 million Series B financing. The oversubscribed financing was led by Venrock and included investments from Foresite Capital and Paladin Capital as well as both Series A investors, NanoDimension and Spruce/MLS.
"The simplification of single-cell, multiple edit genome engineering to an automated, benchtop process will democratize gene writing in the same way that Illumina's efforts did for gene reading 10 years ago. It will enable many more scientists to rapidly conduct genomic research and develop new products across multiple applications in healthcare, agriculture, and industrial biotechnology," said Bryan Roberts, Partner at Venrock. "Muse bio can fulfill this promise."
