About our project

The problem we solve: - Time - Industry research time to create new drugs takes too long (12 years) - Cost - It takes, on average, over $350M to get 1 new drug from the laboratory onto the pharmacy shelf - No easy way to access research participants - currently a bespoke effort

About our solution: A mobile application where contributors can rent out their DNA to medical researchers, make money in the process and help cure disease

Progress to date:

Currently we are developing the prototype of DNA ID. We've developed an easy workflow for contributors to order a saliva kit to have their DNA sequenced, and a conducive way for them to share that information with the Medical research community.

How we will use the funds raised

The funds generated here will be used to start and pay for the sequencing of the saliva samples that we collect. It's expensive to sequence the entire genome, but it's getting cheaper by the day. The funds raised here will be a small piece in the overall funding plan but will be a great start!!

Thank You

DNA sequencing is becoming more and more prevelant and publicly available through commercial companies. We are a company that is going to do it right. We don't want to sell your data, in fact we won't even have access to it. We are asking for your help to put the ownership of your DNA back in your hands!
