The Genomics segment aims to utilize advances in genomics to create business gains while also helping to enhance human wellbeing by helping to treat genetic diseases. The sequencing of the human genome and the emergence of various CRISPR technologies have made it possible to imagine a world in which genes that have faulty DNA base pair sequences can be treated or repaired. The goals of our Genomics businesses are multifold. We aim to analyze and diagnose the genomes of humans. We aim to utilize our expertise in genomics to develop protein and antibody medicines.
