Third Rock Ventures accelerate biotechnology startups using AWS infrastructure and machine learning


Machine learning is increasingly used to support therapeutic discovery at biotech companies. Third Rock Ventures is a venture firm that builds and launches biotech companies that accelerate scientific discoveries and transform patient lives. Dozens of Third Rock portfolio companies make use of AWS services to support their infrastructure, data science, bioinformatics, and machine-learning initiatives. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) along with flexible storage modalities such as Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) empower teams to aggregate complex, semi-structured datasets. Amazon SageMaker notebooks provide a cloud solution for reproducible, easy to implement data science workflows. Similarly, Amazon Comprehend Medical makes it easy to structure medical text data, which enables biotech companies to better collaborate with clinical partners and identify opportunities to serve patients

“AWS empowers early-stage biotech companies to build data platforms that lead to scientific discoveries and medical breakthroughs.”
