DNAtix – the genetics  blockchain company,  announced the pilot of a breakthrough  blockchain-based infrastructure and ecosystem for anonymous genetic  testing, services and research. Lack of privacy is currently the barrier  for so many people who want to be tested but are afraid to give their  genetic data away. Anyone can anonymously upload partial and/or full  genome sequences onto the DNAtix platform; contributors own their  genomic data and use it to make informed decisions. The DNAtix genetics  ecosystem links individual users in search of health solutions, or  answers to genetic enquiries, with products and services that fit their  needs. 

 To ensure the  security and anonymity on the platform, DNAtix has developed the genetic  wallet that will facilitate a wide range of anonymous genetic services.  The DNA collection kit you buy and the ‘wallet’ created for you on the  DNAtix website are connected through a code that is only provided on the  kit at time of purchase – which is paid with cash. By using the wallet  you become a code in the system and DNAtix doesn’t know who you are.  When the sequence of your DNA reaches the system, it knows to put the  data into your wallet so your DNA is fully private and you remain  anonymous. “DNAtix is solving the privacy issue once and for all  by testing highly sensitive DNA data with the first infrastructure  blockchain ecosystem solution for anonymous genetic services,” said Ofer  A. Lidsky, DNAtix CEO and CTO. “Anonymity will help so many people  really utilize genetics testing and research.” Consumers,  healthcare institutions, research centers, clinics, genetic counselors  and others interested in using, testing, or gathering DNA data can now  connect, work together for better health solutions and feel confident in  sharing their genetic information.

**Technology Breakthroughs: An entire genetics ecosystem on the blockchain**
DNAtix  is the first company to successfully transfer a genetic sequence over  the Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric Blockchains.  DNAtix intends to be  the first to securely bring unsourced full genome sequencing into the  mainstream through a direct-to-consumer (D2C) platform. Opening  the door for advancements in research, new treatments, and cutting-edge  personalized and preventive medicine, DNAtix’s D2C platform will provide  full genome testing and access to services and solutions on the  Blockchain and will allow researchers to use anonymous DNA, stored on  the DNAtix infrastructure, to create tests, do research and design new  treatments.   DNAtix has developed an open source tool for DNA compression to overcome some of the challenges related to genomic data size.
