"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."

"For years, we have been working on behalf of neglected and underserved disease communities to help improve the lives of people with rare and fatal diseases," said Fabio Cavalli, Chief Executive Officer of mondoBIOTECH. "When we met the founders of 23andMe last year at Davos and saw what they were doing with genetics, we knew that a collaboration between the two companies could go a long way towards understanding the causes of the diseases we have been researching."
