Behind the Scenes

About the Company

We are the creators of VarSome, a suite of bioinformatics tools for processing and annotation of NGS data. We are a multi-disciplinary team driven by passion and curiosity, bringing together strong skills in life sciences and software engineering.

Our Story

We were frustrated with the inconsistency and amount of time and effort it takes to find comprehensive information on gene variants in the fragmented landscape of human genomics, and we decided to act on it. The result is VarSome, a set of sophisticated platforms and tools that will save you both time and effort.

Our Mission

Our goal is to help improve outcomes for patients by offering clinicians data-driven solutions for making faster, more accurate diagnoses and for selecting the best therapies. To do this, we are pioneering genome-scale analysis and annotation of NGS data through providing algorithms and sophisticated tools for aggregating, harmonizing and analyzing large amounts of data across multiple disparate sources.

Your genome knows much more about your medical history than you do.
