Rare diseases
in genomic literature

2019-03-04T16:30:01+00:00

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has paved the way for a remarkable global surge in discovery and research in the field of genomics, and particularly on rare disease. Rare genetic conditions pose a significant burden on individuals and families, and such research efforts offer a glimmer of hope for the discovery of novel therapies and definitive diagnoses [...]

Emedgene raises $6 million to scale genomics-based care with AI

2019-02-19T15:20:00+00:00

We’re very pleased to announce our recent fundraising round, led by OliveTree Ventures. Although sequencing costs are below $1000, interpretation is still a major bottleneck to widespread adoption of NGS testing and that’s where we’re focusing our efforts. Here’s the full press announcement, detailing the whys and hows: February 19th, 2019, Palo Alto, California -- [...]

Emedgene Honors Rare Disease Day. With 8% of the world’s population affected by rare diseases, rare is actually not that rare

2017-05-09T09:57:43+00:00

In our work with clinicians and genetic institutes worldwide for the past years, we encountered countless of patients with undiagnosed diseases, who’s been sent from specialist to specialist, from one examination to the next, with no conclusion or result. This decade presents a unique opportunity to finally bring advanced genetic diagnostics and treatment [...]
