The Octave code, written by Rob Carlson and Rik Wehbring, for the plots above and those published in Nature Biotechnology is available on the BioeconomySize Github page. As published in "Estimating the biotech sector's contribution to the US economy", Nature Biotechnology, 34, 247–255 (2016).
Rik Wehbring is the all-time leading contributor to the GNU Octave code base. His code is available in every Octave installation.
We have a long history of building prototypes and of product design and development in areas ranging from laboratory equipment, to telecommunications equipment, to medical ultrasound, to digital and analog ASICs.
Strategy and Analytics
Much of our consulting work for governments, corporations, and NGOs is proprietary. Below are a few publicly available examples.
2012 Biodefence Net Assessment
The Biodefence Net Assessment (BNA) is a congressionally mandated, quadrennial review of U.S. biosecurity run by the Homeland Security Institute on behalf the Department of Homeland Security. Our contribution to the 2012 BNA, "Causes and Consequences of Bioeconomic Proliferation: Implications for U.S. Physical and Economic Security" (PDF) is the only BNA report ever released into the public domain. The report collects and examines available data on the size and pace of change of the bioeconomy and biotechnology in the U.S. and several other countries of interests, and is a unique analytic piece framing the future of U.S. security.
2011 Bioeconomy Update
Here is an early version of the bioeconomy analysis that later appears in the 2012 BNA and in Nature Biotechnology in 2016.
Microbrewing the Bioeconomy
Here is an early take (from 2011) on how microbrewing is a model for the future of distributed biological manufacturing.
