PetaGene initially began as “Project PetaGene,” a research project by a group of PhD graduates from the University of Cambridge, who worked in collaboration with the European Bioninformatics Institute to try to solve the problem of genomic data storage from a new angle. PetaGene was a member of London-based incubator Entrepreneur First’s sixth cohort, from which it graduated in 2016.
