About Us

OUR MISSION

Empowering consumers with the knowledge to live longer, healthier, happier lives through DNA-based living is the mission of gene2know. Through Pharmacogenomics we help shift medication management from guesswork to a predictive science. We also put our customers’ DNA at their fingertips and give them access to a multitude of information. This unprecedented access can guide them to lifestyle choices that are specifically right for them at a genetic level. From Pharmacogenomics to diet and exercise, our customers can live better lives by using their DNA as their guide, while we simultaneously offer a new approach to healthcare.

GENE2KNOW & GENESIS LABS

The ultimate merger of science and technology.

When G2K started, the goal was to develop a simple genetic interpretation tool for the purpose of making Pharmacogenomics (PGx) available to everyone. At the time, Pharmacogenomics was only available through a physician referral and prescription. The cost of most of these tests was out of the range of the vast majority of consumers. We new that a simpler, lower cost alternative was attainable, it would just take work.

As we went down this path, we realized that we could accomplish so much more than Pharmacogenomics and make DNA-based lifestyle choices accessible to all consumers and all patients. This realization led to G2K partnering with GENESIS Labs and their a affiliates to enable an enterprise-level, cloud-based solution coupled with 1st-class customer service and support.

Over 3 years after this journey began, we have achieved our original goal by developing a personalized world-class medication management solution with an easy-to-use mobile application, and now we can offer so much more.

Our original mission has morphed into the world’s first complete, on-demand, interactive DNA mobile application that can guide consumers to make better choices based on their DNA, not just for medications (PGx) but for their entire lifestyle.

While G2K’s focus to be the simplest, most accurate, DNA product on the market with the most current information remains, our partnership with GENESIS Labs also made the solution the fastest to integrate and easiest to collaborate. The resulting collaboration with GENESIS and its a affiliates provides a highly secure environment for G2K as a Productivity-On-Demand (POD) application that resides on a quickly-scaling and proven Life-Sciences Industry Platform.
