The Gene By Gene Story

Gene By Gene was founded in 2000, specializing in DNA-based ancestry and genealogy as FamilyTreeDNA. The first company of its kind, FamilyTreeDNA captured the hearts of genealogy enthusiasts and to this day remains one of the leading companies in the field. Our expertise in this field has led to many prestigious relationships along the way, including an exclusive partnership as the testing provider for National Geographic’s Genographic Project.

Through FamilyTreeDNA, Gene By Gene built an incredible laboratory and an incredible staff of experts. By 2011, it only made sense to expand the scope of capabilities into the medical and research fields. Through this expansion, clinicians and patients have had access to an entire suite of clinical and research genetic tests.
