Cofactor Genomics is a biotechnology company founded by past Human Genome Project scientists. Cofactor provides RNA sequencing and analysis services to the research arms of eight of the world’s largest pharma and biotech companies, and is in the process of commercializing a suite of products targeting oncologic, immunologic, and neurodegenerative diseases. Cofactor’s novel technology combines biology with proprietary machine learning software to develop unique molecular diagnostics centered on RNA. While the rest of the industry was focused on DNA as a diagnostic, Cofactor mapped out molecular technologies, new software approaches, and the regulatory path necessary to lead the industry in RNA-based technologies.

Since recently completing these R&D and regulatory milestones in its accredited laboratories (St. Louis, MO), Cofactor began building out a  product and commercialization arm on the West Coast (San Francisco, CA). To date, Cofactor Genomics has raised more than $20 million in funding, including an oversubscribed $18 million Series A in 2017. The company is backed by several top-tier investors including Menlo Ventures, Data Collective, Y Combinator, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Stanford University, and Ascension Ventures; Ascension Ventures being the funding arm for 13 healthcare systems in 42 states, 500+ hospitals, and representing 90B in yearly healthcare revenue. Cofactor has been featured in many publications, including TechCrunch and Wired Magazine.
