OUR STORY


Genomenon, a name signifying “born out of need” in ancient Greek, perfectly encapsulates the genesis of our journey.

In his clinical practice and genomic research, co-founder Dr. Mark Kiel was frustrated with the painfully slow and time-consuming process of manual curation. He was also well aware of the diagnostic odyssey that thousands of rare disease patients and families face as he and his twin brother had hypodontia, or missing adult teeth, in their youth. Living with a rare condition as a child focused Mark’s attention on genetics, and his desire to make an impact on rare diseases.

Genomenon was founded in 2014 to address this pressing need for faster, more comprehensive variant interpretation by combining expert curation with unique machine-learning methods designed to keep up with the pace of new publications and present the most relevant information to researchers.

Today, Genomenon empowers scientists and researchers at pharmaceutical companies, clinical labs, and universities to more thoroughly understand diseases at a molecular level.

Genomenon is headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
