The Gene By Gene Story

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

Through Family Tree DNA, 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, as DNA Traits and DNA DTC. Through these companies, clinicians and patients have had access to an entire suite of clinical and research genetic tests, and both entities are now known under one unified name, Gene By Gene. It is our mission to unleash the power of genetic testing for everyone, giving unparalleled insight into ourselves and our future.
