Founded in 1993 as a biotech start-up by Texas businesswoman Caroline Caskey, Identigene gained instant scientific recognition for pioneering the use of STR, or short tandem repeat technology, for commercial DNA paternity testing. STR quickly became the gold standard for DNA paternity testing. In 2007, Sorenson Genomics, owned by Utah philanthropist and fellow entrepreneur, James LeVoy Sorenson, acquired Identigene.
