The startup, which was founded by Harvard's George Church, plans to commercialize a sequencing technology that is also able to map RNAs in 3D. 

In an amended draft policy on comprehensive genomic profiling, Palmetto said that approved registries will have to commit to sharing data, among other requirements. 

The firm's technology, called genotyping by random amplicon sequencing, or GRAS, should improve the efficiency of identifying and selecting markers for crop improvement.

The researchers also plan to analyze how payors make coverage decisions for NGS-based gene panels, exome, and whole-genome sequencing clinical tests. 

The new company believes it can be the dominant clearinghouse for genome analysis apps or other tools, with free and unlimited storage of users' genomic data.
