We strive to make accessible to anyone the Scientific Innovations in Genomics

Allelica was founded in January 2018 by molecular biologist Giordano Bottà, geneticist George Busby and computer scientist Paolo Di Domenico. We are in a scientific revolution in Genomics and with our easy and efficient platform we are empowering physicians with the right tools to bring precision medicine into their clinical practice.
Giordano is a molecular biologist and bioinformatician passionate about everything related to DNA, genetics and evolution. He carried out research at the University of Oxford, where he had the opportunity to work with the top genomics experts in the world, publishing in the journal Nature. He wants to give people the opportunity to benefit from the scientific revolution happening in the Genomics field, creating digital products to allow an effective use of the extraordinary information carried in our DNA.

Paolo Di Domenico

CTO & Co-Founder

Field: Software Engineering & Data mining

Paolo is a software engineer who programmed his first software at the age of 5 with a Commodore 64 and Basic language. Since then he has gained experience in numerous programming languages and in managing complex systems. His goal is to develop algorithms and software that are able to translate the latest scientific finding of genomic prediction in the clinical practices.
George is a geneticist and a writer. He has been a researcher at the University of Oxford for more than 7 years and his scientific work has been published in Nature and Science. He was always fascinated by the possibility of reconstruct the human evolutionary history analyzing large genomic dataset and using advanced statistical modeling. He now leads the Allelica scientific team, bringing the polygenic risk score for the first time to the market, that has been proven to be useful in genetics medicine.
