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

To enable anyone to find, share and use the most comprehensive human genome data – and to collaborate to improve health and lives around the world.

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