The key to understanding cancer, childhood diseases, crop optimization, livestock breeding, and synthetic biology are found in the genome.
The industry-leading algorithms that interpret the genome sequence miss 50% of all genetic variation in humans and perform even worse on plants, animals, and microorganisms. In addition, these algorithms have high false positive rates making it impossible to take action on their findings (especially in clinical applications like oncology).
Anchored Assembly, our novel, patent-pending algorithm outperforms all competing approaches on every relevant metric. In benchmark tests, we detect 95% of all genetic variations with a false positive rate of less than 0.1%, allowing us to find variations up to 2000x larger than industry-leading algorithms. Additionally, we are species agnostic.
By providing highly accurate data, Spiral Genetics unlocks the ability to understand, detect, and diagnose the genetic mechanisms behind disease and phenotypic traits.
