Tel Aviv, Israel, September 17, 2019 — Digital DNAtix Ltd., the Israeli cyber genetics startup, has announced the first free anonymous genetic vault service.
Lack of privacy is currently a barrier for so many people who want to have their DNA tested but are afraid to give their genetic data away. As of today anyone can anonymously upload their raw file from 23&Me and Ancestry.com onto the DNAtix platform and receive the following benefits:
- Anonymous results
- See their report connected to individual genes explanations
- Connect to people who share mutual traits on dedicated social Telegram anonymously
- Talk to others and gain insights into their genetic make-up
To ensure the security and anonymity on the platform, DNAtix has developed a genetic vault which facilitates a wide range of anonymous genetic services. The vault created on the DNAtix cloud is based on distributed ledger technologies that allows the user to remain anonymous.
“DNAtix is solving the privacy issue once and for all by handling highly sensitive DNA data with a distributed ledger ecosystem solution for anonymous genetic services,” said Ofer A. Lidsky, DNAtix CEO and CTO. “Anonymity creates Privacy that will help so many people utilize genetic testing and research.”
This is also the FIRST TIME that DNAtix is offering anonymous Social Genetics groups to participants. It allows people to be direct, ask questions, connect with others that share the same traits, gain insights and create a better crowd-sourced data base from which everyone can share and benefit.
Consumers, healthcare institutions, research centers, clinics, genetic counselors and others interested in using, testing, or gathering DNA data can now connect, work together towards better health solutions and feel confident in sharing their genetic information.
“We believe that DNAtix’s social genetics groups are going to become a vital tool for people to use wisdom of the crowd to learn more about their condition. This genetics revolution will allow medicine to transform from reactive to preventive,” said Ofer A. Lidsky, DNAtix CEO and CTO.
