About Us
Gene-Chain™ Solutions for the Genomics Market

EncrypGen provides next generation software for genomic data empowering patients and donors, facilitating health, business, and science in a safe environment. 

Gene Chain
“The public debate over gene patents, the remaining questions about gene ownership needed to be resolved. This time, instead of waiting for public policy to catch up, we decided to make something, something that creates, tracks, and resolves questions of custody and payment and that makes science and commerce less risky:
The Gene-Chain™ was born.”
David Koepsell, JD, PhD
Mission
“To provide our customers and partners best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security software for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. We empower science and business to more efficiently achieve their goals.” 
DNA Token
The DNA token is a “utility” token used solely as the medium of exchange of genomic data on our private blockchain. It is available for purchase on various exchanges, and will be sold here through our website soon. Licensed Gene-Chain nodes, and individuals uploading and making available their data to the nodes, use the token as the means of payment for exchanges of genomic data.
Our Products
“The Gene-Chain is a blockchain (a cryptographically encoded ledger) to mediate the searching, storing, buying and selling of genomic data. It is a private network, meaning that to fully participate by searching, one must buy a node through a license, enhancing security and privacy of the genetic data on our network. Anyone is free to safely store their data on the Gene-Chain in order to share with their doctors without any charge — for free. They may choose to allow scientists to search for and buy their data, putting the individual in charge of their genetic data, providing custody and control, as well as payment for use, for one of our most personal assets. The Gene-Chain is a first-of-its kind application of blockchain technology to genomic science.”
GENE-CHAIN LINK
Link is for organizations with existing storage and analytics solutions who wish to expose selected data to the GENE-CHAIN, then share that data with the benefits of Blockchain (like security, an audit trail, and enhanced privacy). You can plug and play GENE-CHAIN onto your existing infrastructure.
GENE-CHAIN LAB
Lab is designed for labs who wish to enhance their storage and computing solutions using GENE-CHAIN’s Deep-Learning compression algorithms for genetic data. The plan is also for those who wish to expose their data selectively on the Blockchain and enjoy the benefits of Blockchain Technology.
GENE-CHAIN COMMERCE
Commerce is the largest GENE-CHAIN plan available. It’s for those with very large computing capacity and storage needs. GENE-CHAIN will implement a customized Deep-Learning System on top of your current platform.

Advisors

Barry Smith, Ph.D. Advisor, gene-ontology and data objects

Barry is Director, National Center for Ontological Research; Affiliate Professor of Biomedical Informatics, Computer Science and Engineering, and Neurology at the University at Buffalo. and Fellow, American College of Medical Informatics.

Amnon H. Eden, Ph.D. Advisor, Computer Scientist

Amnon is the Principal Scientist at the Sapience.org thinktank. Amnon programmed for and consulted start-ups, multinationals, and hedge funds in Tel Aviv and London high-tech industries, and held academic positions, most recently at the University of Essex.

Nick Lynch PhD, Advisor, informatics and pharmaceutics

Founder, Curlew Research & CTO Open PHACTS Foundation. Nick has worked for >20 years in pharma research (biotechs, informatics companies and global pharma) delivering data analytics and services across R&D.

Richard E. Shute, B. Pharm. Ph.D.  Advisor, Medicinal Chemist, Informatician, Blockchain Innovator. 

Richard worked for over 25 years in global pharma (ICI/Zeneca/AstraZeneca) in drug discovery projects and as an IS/IT/Informatics relationship manager.  He now consults for Curlew Research, and has presented on blockchain and on the new genomics marketplace.

Partners & Memberships

Curlew Research is an Organizational partner.

Founded in 2015,  Curlew Research are enjoying supporting a range of Pharma & Technology customers with their health and life science innovation projects, and excited by the potential of Blockchain to support future healthcare needs.

Sapience is a strategic partner.

Sapience Project is a think tank and public policy institute located in London, UK, primarily involved in research regarding intelligent computing and its impact on economies and societies.

THE GLOBAL ALLIANCE FOR GENOMICS AND HEALTH

The diverse members of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health are working together to create interoperable approaches to catalyze projects that will help unlock the great potential of genomic data.

NVIDIA INCEPTION PROGRAM

Inception nurtures dedicated and exceptional startups who are revolutionizing industries with advances in AI and data science. This virtual accelerator program helps startups during critical stages of product development, prototyping, and deployment.

MULTICHAIN

MultiChain helps organizations to build and deploy blockchain applications with speed.

This is a software tool for web asset and legal contracts on blockchain, allows its customers to control whether the chain is private or public, how big the block is, and who can connect to the network.

IT leaders rely on this tool to stay agile as they adopt blockchain technology because they can deploy unlimited blockchains per server for cross-chain applications, providing them with full control of their own open digital ledgers. Blockchain is all about creating trust through transparency over public networks, and MultiChain has begun to emerge as a leading tool to facilitate that, although it’s also certainly not the only choice

Customer Portal

Are you a Gene-Chain customer with a node? Are you a token holder? Here we will bring together all customers of the Gene-Chain, as well as build our portal for uploading directly individual DNA data.

Gene-Chain Coin holders and customers with nodes wishing to use our utility token (the DNA token), will be able to confer, find exchanges for trading the tokens, and work together to enable the flow of genomic information on the Gene-Chain and its nascent new genomic economy. We will be adding a social media component too, to tie together our vibrant Slack community with Gene-Chain customers and supporters.

Gene-Chain Coin: DNA. Market info coming soon

DNA is available for trading on CryptopiaEtherDelta and IDEX, and the Eidoo wallet. The utility-token, which is the currency for genomic data transfer among Gene-Chain customers, is now an ERC20 token.  We aim to make it widely available and are applying for more exchanges every day. Our genomic blockchain is Multichain. Multichain is built on a fork of Bitcoin Core, If you bought DNA when it was still on Multichain, you can exchange it for the ERC20 token below, at the wallet link.
