Insilicos scored a $900,000 grant from the federal National Institutes of Health (NIH), the company said today.

The Seattle-based bioinformatics startup makes software for biomedical research and clinical diagnostics, specializing in cardiovascular disease. It has so far received more than $3 million in NIH grants.

The latest grant is to be applied toward the development of “ensemble learning,” a technique that would allow machines to make more accurate predictions by using several statistical models instead of a single model.
