Understanding the software of life

Rebecca Zisser / Axios

Once disparate fields of science are intersecting in unprecedented ways — physicists are flocking to solve biology's complex problems, geologists and astronomers mind meld over the search for alien life, and ecologists and economists collaborate to try to figure out how we compete and cooperate. Axios Science, which launches today, will cover these intersections where ideas are colliding and the questions they answer.

Biology + computer science: Axios talked with Vijay Pande, a physicist/biologist who is now a general partner at Silicon Valley investment firm Andreessen Horwitz where he oversees their portfolio of companies that apply computation to medicine.
