The Human Genome Project?


The Human Genome Project (HGP) was a 13-year project coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health in cooperation with genetic bioscience giants Celera Genomics (CRA), Incyte (INCY), and Human Genome Sciences (HGSI). The long awaited completion of The Human Genome Project, which told us what the sequence of the average person’s genetic code is “supposed” to be, gave the necessary information for publicly funded research as well as for-profit research to begin understanding how the differences between individuals DNA affect health and disease. Indeed, this information gave rise to the concept of “personalized medicine”, which seeks to use precise genetic information about individual patients to custom tailor their mode of therapy for a disease. This concept of personalized medicine has fueled the growth of multi-billion dollar companies like Mercator Pharmaceuticals; Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Myriad Genetics, and Affymetrix.

Like these well known giants, a lesser known company called Genelink (GNLK) had a similar bold idea back in 2001, even before the completion of the HGP, to use personalized medicine to maintain their well being. Long before it was trendy for companies to begin talking about “personalized medicine”, GeneLink was taking a leadership roll in the development of individualized therapies by focusing on four important genomic research areas:

Nutragenetics – The study of the relationship between our nutrient intake and gene function, with a particular emphasis of how this information could be applied to optimize an individual’s overall health regimen.

Dermagenetics – GeneLink’s pioneering research and development efforts literally launched the exciting new field of Dermagenetics® -the scientific application of genomic sciences to guide personalized, more effective skin care products and therapies.

Applied Technologies – GeneLink innovations led the company to develop a proprietary mass customization system for nutritional supplements and skin care product delivery. In 2005, GeneLink introduced DNA UltraCustom™ – the first scientifically proven anti-aging skin-care products for consumers based on their individual Skin-DNA profile.
