Genomelink is a consumer genomics company building a DNA App Store where people can upload and store DNA data to access more insights, products, and health research. Over 50M people have got DNA tested in the U.S., and we believe that the number will continue to grow billions across the world in the following decades. For the future, we are creating an application platform on top of the existing DNA test kit market where people can transfer DNA data from any testing company, securely store data all in one place, and continuously access more applications without losing their data ownership.
We are on missions to;
- Build a world #1 consumer application platform
- Help advancement of genomics and health science
- Bring back DNA data ownership to your hand
