NRGene is a cloud-based genomics big-data solution provider whose applications include medical research, as well as plant and animal breeding.


Our solutions have reduced genome mapping and assembly, from years and millions of dollars to a turnkey technology solution, requiring only a few weeks at a fraction of the cost. With our interdisciplinary team of bioinformaticians, geneticists, and breeders, NRGene is continuously refining our big-data tools for advanced genomic research, encouraging diversity in medical research, and plant and animal breeding.


Our unique advanced computational tools and cutting-edge algorithmic models have been adopted by leading seed companies worldwide, pharmaceutical companies, and academic institutions. To date we have assembled and compared hundreds of genomes from over 300 different organisms, including the world’s first wheat genome, a feat previously considered all but impossible due to its large scale. Other successful projects include maize, soy, tomato, cattle, and rainbow trout.


As research now moves towards the era of pan-genomics, our platforms analyze, synchronize, and share genomic data across hundreds of individuals, making them applicable to human genetic research and personalized medicine.
