Cypher Genomics has been featured as one of 12 Tech Startups to Watch in San Diego by Xconomy, a leading source for innovation business news.  Cypher’s technology offers a highly accurate, rapid and robust interpretation software solution for users of human genome sequencing.

We have received a number of other recognitions throughout the San Diego innovation community including being named one of San Diego Venture Group’s COOL Companies.  We also received the MetroConnect Prize from San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation’s Go Global San Diego Initiative.

As San Diego is establishing itself as the center for genomic advancement, Cypher stands out as the leader in genomic innovation by collaborating with other top companies and institutions to enhance diagnostics.  For example, the partnership between Cypher and Sequenom, the leading molecular diagnostics company, is paving the way for noninvasive prenatal testing and continued collaborations with UPenn/CurePSP as well as the Clinic for Special Children, are providing answers to many families with children afflicted by rare diseases.
