About Us

Subio = sub-stream + bio

I have been working in transcriptomics data analysis since 2002, when I started my career as a technical support staff of Gene Spring software. I have gone through the microarray's arising, booming and fading, and now in the second cycle of RNA-Seq. Anyway, I am feeling odd that many get to think that omics data analysis is something like they can do it by following a textbook. However, the fact is we human beings have no idea how to extract biological meaning from omics data for these two decades.

Omics is one of the hardest challenges in human history, and it's "only" 20 years since the beginning. The technology made significant progress, though, the data analysis methodology has remained helpless groping in the dark. So, the time of the competition of data mining must come soon. AI will doubtlessly be the mainstream. Teams in the world with the big-budget, facilities, and brilliant brains will get the attention of scientists. However, we think they lack a key.

What's the key?

We think it's ideas based on the experience and intuition of the countless experimental biologists in wet labs. You often see a concept evangelized by top researchers dominates the mind in the academic society and gone. The driver for the science is to take continuously in ideas from outside of the mainstream paradigm to keep doing enormous trials and errors. So it is essential to invite people with different backgrounds to the discussion.

So we made the company named after "sub-stream" and "bio" and made the most user-friendly software for wet biologists. It's not only for bioinformaticians but for various researchers with different backgrounds so that they can exchange ideas and work together. We are happy to work for the evolving new life science by involving many people to the omics.
