Full Description

Gene by Gene, founded in April of 2000, was the first company in the world to develop DNA testing for ancestry and genealogical purposes as a commercial application. Prior to the company’s initiative, these tests were only available for academic and research purposes. Because of this innovation, the National Geographic Society and its partner, IBM, selected us to provide the testing and manage all public participation in the Genographic Project.

Initially, the Arizona Research Labs at The University of Arizona performed all testing. In 2006, Gene by Gene established a state-of-the-art Genomics Research Center at its headquarters in Houston, Texas, where we currently perform R&D and process over 200 types of DNA tests for our customers.

Today, Gene by Gene is the largest processor of Full Mitochondria Sequences in the world and the largest submitter of those sequences to the NCBI’s Genbank. Additionally, we are the top discoverer of Y-chromosome Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). During our 12 years of operations, we have processed over 5 million discrete tests for over 700,000 individuals.
