Andreessen Horowitz has raised $450 million for its second venture capital fund focused on the intersection of biology and computer science.

Why it matters: This is more than double the size of Andressen Horowitz's first bio-focused fund, reflecting more opportunity than the Silicon Valley-based firm had originally expected — including for companies with applications outside of healthcare.
