NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Pharmacogenomics firm GenetWorx is locating its headquarters in Glen Allen, Va., in a move that is anticipated to create at least 200 jobs.
The announcement was made earlier this week by Henrico County, where Glen Allen is situated.
Founded in 2012, GenetWorx provides DNA analysis of patients for use by clinicians in support of treatment decisions. The firm offers a test kit, which clinicians can use to collect a patient's DNA with an oral swab. The kit is mailed to GenetWorx for analysis, and the results are mailed back to the clinician.
