About Us

Genomic technologies like next generation DNA sequencing (NGS) have the potential to fundamentally change medicine, research, agriculture, etc. However, the biggest bottleneck is data analysis and interpretation. We have started Basepair to make NGS data analysis as simple as booking a flight online and open the floodgates for adoption of NGS.

We are genomics enthusiasts who have first-hand understanding of the NGS science, technology and market.
