About Us

GenomSys is a Swiss company developing technology powering enterprise-grade tools and applications for efficient processing and sharing of DNA data, enabling the progress of large scale and personalized genomic medicine.

Our new generation of solutions enable to securely store individual DNA on personal devices and share them easily to practitioners for diagnostics, pharmacogenomics, personalized treatments and other applications using genetic data to improve the quality of life of people.

All our products are compliant with MPEG-G, the new ISO standard for genomic information representation, offering advanced features of data access and handling as well as dramatic reduction of both storage costs and transfer time while respecting safety and privacy regulations.

We aim to commoditize DNA analysis, making genomic data streaming, sharing, analysis as easy as shooting and sharing digital videos.
