Personal Genome

Personal Genome Business Division

Personal genome analysis is a field that is receiving attention as a core factor of the future medical paradigm such as precision medicine and preventive medicine. The “personal genetic information era” dawned when James Watson, who discovered the structure of DNA, was recorded as the first person to analyze personal genetic information in 2007. As technologies have developed rapidly since then, it is now the “era of the popularization of genetic information” when anybody can detect their own or their family’s disease risk and health disorders and prevent diseases through genetic information analysis.

Macrogen’s Personal Genome Business Division launched “My GenomestoryTM” in July 2017 to lead the personal genome analysis field. My Genomestory is a personal genetic analysis service that provides easy, fun and fancy genetic information to various clients and helps everybody improve their lifestyle by understanding their inherent traits with their own genetic information, beyond a mere genetic test that tells of disease risk only. Macrogen’s Personal Genome Business Division will keep performing research and development of My Genomestory with the goal of becoming a health management mentor and a partner for our customers’ life journey and ceaselessly suggest new services to customers with this.

My GenomestoryTM

My Genomestory, a personal genome analysis service of Macrogen, is a personalized health service to help persons actively respond to risks of disease by predicting the level of risk of a certain disease and the physical characteristics of a person via analysis of the person’s genome
