"We are eager to take an active role in advancing research of rare genetic disorders," said Linda Avey, co-founder of 23andMe. "By partnering with our colleagues at mondoBIOTECH, a company acutely focused in this area, we'll be able to leverage the genetics and bioinformatics expertise of our science team toward better understanding of these often devastating conditions."
