NantOmics Acquires Genos To Bolster Its Precision Medicine Platform

CULVER CITY, Calif., April 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NantOmics, the leader in molecular diagnostics and a member of the NantWorks ecosystem of families, announced today the acquisition of Genos, the leading community for next-generation sequencing, personal genetic discovery and research, based in San Francisco.

Genos was spun out of Complete Genomics in 2016 and quickly has become the leader in making next-generation sequencing more accessible and giving individuals access to 50 times more data than current popular sequencing options as well as opportunities to participate in groundbreaking research projects.

NantOmics plans to integrate the Genos technology, technical expertise and data visualization and research platform into its pan-omic analysis tools, further bolstering the company's industry leading precision medicine service that integrates whole genomic sequencing, transcriptomics, predictive proteomics and quantitative proteomics.

"We are excited to integrate the Genos technology and to welcome Genos employees to the NantOmics team," stated Patrick Soon-Shiong, M.D., founder and CEO of NantOmics. "With the addition of the state-of-the-art discovery and research tools from Genos, NantOmics will enhance its comprehensive diagnostic platform which delivers patient-specific pan-omic information and, ultimately, improves disease diagnosis and treatment."

"NantOmics is a leader in enabling precision medicine and Genos is excited to join forces with NantOmics to help accelerate the field of precision medicine and precision health," said Mark Blumling, co-founder and CEO of Genos.
