Company Summary

X&Y Genomics combines sciences & aesthetics to create tools that empower people -- like our 'DNA by Me' platform, which helps users understand the results of genetic scans by interacting with virtual objects and seeing how the shape of their risk can change. Or our 'Genomic Jewelry' : 3D-printed, unique, wearable, with a wide selection of colors and materials. We want to prevent genetic discrimination while producing quality products to users.
