Bringing together whole genome biology, analysis and clinical reporting

genomiQa is has grown out of a collaboration between our founders Dr Nic Waddell and Prof. John Pearson of QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Brisbane, Australia.

genomiQa is working with pharma and biotech companies to implement whole genome into clinical development and with health systems to integrate whole genome analysis for cancer (CapeDx) and germline (GulfDx).

genomiQa is seeking venture investment to expand our international reach. Contact Us for more information on our plans.
