Dr. Kotamarti comes from a background of entrepreneurship across a wide spectrum of technical solutions that elevate the quality of human life. As a serial entrepreneur and an executive management professional, Dr. Kotamarti’s innovations range from Wireless Telecom to Mobile Genomics.
In his 30 years of career, Dr. Mallik Kotamarti held senior level positions as Vice Chairman,
CEO, VP and Director levels and also gained experience as a senior management consultant at
IBM, TCS etc. Coming out of his Duke MBA, Mallik fine tuned his approach to commercializing his

experience in startups, raising capital, writing business plans and building multi-disciplinary
teams.
Dr. Kotamarti’s interest in biotech grew post 2000, which lead to his Ph.D in Digital Genomics
with his best work published in Oxford Bioinformatics; soon Dr. Kotamarti co-founded another
company called Quibble Genomics Institute, Inc. which specializes in DNA modeling and
analysis based on computationally more efficient, Quantum Computing ready, alignment free
methods.

“Quibble is designed to work with a plug ‘n play ecosystem where DNA digitalization, testing,
storage, and access develop independently,” said Dr. Kotamarti. “By using mathematical
modeling and data mining, Quibble simplifies and organizes complex genomic data, which easily
lends itself to new algorithms and new discoveries. By using a cluster graph paradigm for
visualization, Quibble simplifies the ability to gain insights into a gene or condition for
physicians and researchers. Fundamentally, Quibble focuses on the last mile convenience for
users, providers, and labs.”

Dr. Kotamarti continues to drive Life Science initiatives at IBM in parallel – latest being in
Watson cognitive focus for healthcare applications as well as new patient management systems
for the VA.
