Pioneering Genome Guided Medicine

Personalis is a contract research organization and genome-scale diagnostics services company pioneering genome guided medicine. We are focused on producing the most accurate genetic sequence data from each sample, and using our analytics and proprietary content to draw accurate and reliable biomedical interpretations of the data. Our tests are based on whole human genome and exome sequencing, conducted in our state-of-the art laboratory. We utilize proprietary databases, advanced human reference sequences, and sophisticated algorithms to analyze results. We currently offer service for research use only, but aim to enter the clinical diagnostics market; our in-house laboratory is CLIA-licensed by the state board of California and CAP accreditation is in progress.

Our team has led the development of next generation DNA sequencing technologies which have transformed medical genetics and biological research. Bringing together experience from multiple DNA sequencing technology companies, we possess a broad view of the field’s technology. Our technological strength is uniquely matched by our medical expertise; four MD’s help lead the company. Our team published the first clinical assessment incorporating an individual’s genome, a peer-reviewed article now widely referenced as seminal. Leaders in biomedical research, members of our team are consistently at the forefront of discovery, illustrated by their extensive track record of peer-reviewed publications in leading journals of both science and medicine.
