#89 - Ali Urman - ARK Invest, DNA Sequencing & the Genomic Revolution
Ali Urman is ARK Invest’s Genomic Revolution analyst, responsible for the company’s research on Gene editing, DNA sequencing, Stem cell technologies & Immunotherapy. As of September 2021, ARK’s AUM stood at a colossal $42.4 billion, spearheaded by investing legend and household name, Cathie Wood. To speak to ARK’s Genomics analyst as a global pandemic thrusts Biotechnology into the spotlight was a huge privilege.
And Ali doesn’t disappoint. We discuss the Genomic revolution – how the sequencing of the first human genome cost $1bn and took 13 years, whereas today, that same process costs anywhere between $100-$1000, and takes just 1-2 days. Ali explains the transformative convergence of Next-generation DNA sequencing, Artificial Intelligence & CRISPR gene editing before we break down exactly how ARK picks their Genomics stocks!
