CoreBiome wins the 2016 Walleye Tank

Micrometer Genomics, comprised of CoreBiome founders Kenneth Beckman, Daryl Gohl, and Dan Knights prior to their company name change, win the Mayo Clinic’s 2016 Walleye Tank pitch competition. The competition is Rochester’s first Biotech Business Pitch Competition, and was a completely sold-out, packed-house endeavor in it’s first edition this Summer.

With the medical world’s growing interest in microbiome composition as an indicator of well-being, the project sparked the interest of many listeners at the 2016 Walleye Tank. The founders were named the winners of the competition for their pitch and their improved methodologies for determining microbiome composition.
