Hello world!#

We just launched lamin.ai as a place for sharing prototypes with our beta customers and collaborators. Over time, we’ll add public releases and use this blog to explain our work.

Why Lamin? It’s a metaphor for an interfacing layer between biology and computing. Lamin proteins make up the essential filament layer that provides the cell nucleus with structural and functional support.
