We are pioneering the inclusion of the African genome in research

We are re-imagining a world where precision medicine is equalized and everyone can live longer.

World Map

Less than 3% of genomic data represented in research is from African populations

As modern humans originating from Africa migrated across the globe, a bottleneck effect was created leaving behind large genetic diversity on the African continent.

Our mission is to deliver on the promise of precision medicine for Africans and the global population, by bridging the disparity gap in genomics data.
