Who is EPINOMICS? 

Decode the programming of our genome to drive personalized medicine

Our vision is to drive personalized medicine by unlocking the full potential of epigenomics - the “software programming” layer sitting on top of our genomic DNA “hardware” and controls the function of all genes, and is a critical driver of many human diseases, including cancer.

We are a venture-backed startup in the Silicon Valley out of Stanford.  We have proprietary technology (highlighted in Stanford annual report) and are building deep data analytics to unlock the value of this multi-dimensional data for pharma, biotech customers, and to bring about the era of personalized medicine.
