Tute Genomics has acquired key assets of Knome, a renowned human-genome interpretation company whose systems and services helped spearhead several of the greatest commercial advancements in modern human genetics.
Co-founded in 2007 by renowned geneticist and Harvard professor George Church, Knome has received national recognition and become a vanguard in fields such as personal genomics and genome research services. In addition to providing genome sequencing and interpretation to individuals such as Ozzy Osbourne and other high profile early adopters, the company's most valuable technology is knoSYS, a best-in-class genome interpretation software platform. Now in its third generation, knoSYS has been transformed into the most sophisticated genome interpretation and clinical decision support system available.
