Our Story

DeBio is a group of IT consultants, blockchain developers, and biologists who are passionate about privacy, decentralized technologies, and genomic data science.

Debio Website Icon_Our vision.png
Our Vision

We aim to democratize direct-to-consumer genomics with a privacy-preserving, anonymous-first platform running on a fully decentralized, autonomous infrastructure.

Our MVP

DeBio 1.0 (private deployment + public demo March 2021) will provide anonymous, decentralized sample collection, payment, data storage, and report distribution. It will already be a VPN, for your DNA.

PERSONAL GENOMICS

Why should I sequence my genes?
 
 
 
 
HEALTH, DIET AND BEAUTY

Determine your best nutrition, supplement, and medication strategies to maintain your health and beauty. Assist your medical professional by getting genome-derived insights.

FUTUREPROOFING
DESCENDANTS

Preview disease and illness risks of your future children by analyzing your genes and your genetic partner's.

Prepare for certain conditions

-- from allergies to Huntington's --

and avoid other conditions via supplements and diet starting as early as possible.

WINDOW INTO THE PAST

Sequence and maintain your personal genetic signature. to understand your particular racial heritage and family history. Understand the routes your forebears have taken in the great human migration out of Africa.

VPN FOR YOUR DNA

Why is it anonymous-first?
 
 
 
PERSONAL GENOMICS COMPANIES OWN -- AND MONETIZE -- YOUR DATA AND PERSONAL ID.

Personal genomics companies have your DNA-KYC pairs and the potential to wield immense power over you.

Anything from providing forensic proof in criminal cases, to tracking you offline, to printing copies of your biomaterial to fool future biometrics.

What's worse, these companies already sell users' genes to pharmacogenetics research with arguable consent.

AVOID: THE
"GENETIC UNDERCLASS"

In the near future:

Insurance companies may utilize your genetic profile to determine  your premiums.

Companies hiring applicants may choose based on genetically determined personality traits or the candidate's health risks.

"Do you have a history of heart disease in your family" is already a genetic question.

THE "HONEYPOT PROBLEM" OF PERSONAL GENOMICS

Personal genomics companies are already being hacked in certain cases.

The fact that massive numbers of KYC-associated genetic data are collected by these companies create a "honeypot problem": Hackers are more inclined to invest time and resources on the hack, and any minor security issue may lead to millions of data points leaking.

Why decentralize the platform?

 
 
 
EMPOWER DIYLabs

DIY Biology Labs have created $100 PCR devices, introduced hundreds of open-access tools, and helped produce everything from coronavirus vaccines to many many transgenic organisms.

DIYLabs are also difficult to monetize and are usually limited to "garage-scale" hobbies.

A decentralized, merit-based blockchain platform that allows DIYLabs access to the $8billion market of personal genomics changes the value equation for these labs.  

GENOME REUSE FOR FUTURE TESTS 

Your genome once sequenced fully , can be reused and retested at any time. Gain access to insights from future genetic research, or combine your genes with your future spouse to see what your children would be like. All done anonymously and securely, with no chance of  "vendor lock-in".

DECENTRALIZED CONFIDENCE

DeBio solves a problem with current personal genetic testing services:

Customers can't normally check the efficacy and the accuracy of the sequencing results unless they have their own labs at home. DeBio allows each user to recheck the results of 2 lab tests and scores each lab based on accuracy.

This is designed to maintain the quality of the test results while accelerating the growth of the ecosystem.

Consumer Reports

Your Genetic Data Isn't Safe.

"Better protections are needed for the intimate data you share when you take a direct-to-consumer genetic test."
