GenieBiome Limited, a biotechnology spinout from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) was founded by world-renowned clinician-scientists and supported by a multidisciplinary team of experts in microbiology, metagenomics, bioinformatics, disease biomarkers, food technology, clinical trials, IP development and commercialization. For over a decade, our team has pioneered the use of microbiome with evidence-based science to tackle a myriad of diseases, including novel virus, gut serious illness, overweight and metabolic syndrome, skin irritation and mental health. Our precision portfolio of G-NiiB includes diagnostic and risk prediction tests, next-generation microbiome precision formula, and precision medicine tailored for the Asian population.
We use our unique metagenomics database to identify novel microbes as diagnostic tools and generate personalized therapy for conditions with unmet needs (Microbiome Precision), and offer tailor-made microbial replacement therapy to restore imbalance in gut microbes to improve health outcomes and prevent diseases.
We pursue infinite innovations that are beyond our imagination, and to achieve impossible missions. G-NiiB is building the world's largest microBiome Asian Big data to fulfil our mission to provide evidence based targeted solutions for the health of the Next Generations.
To be the world leader in Asian Microbiota research, G-NiiB's vision is to:
Big data analysis on our exclusive and extensive database reveals that Asian and Chinese populations have unique microbiome profiles compared to other ethnicities due to hereditary and environmental factors. As such, the microbiome based application in precision diagnosis and therapy may also be different.
Informed by scientific evidence, G-NiiB aims to broaden the availability of microbiome technologies to naturally restore and improve Asian Chinese health in the most precise manner. To achieve this mission, the research team is building the world’s largest microbiome database on Chinese and Asian populations, and incorporating proprietary big data and machine learning analytics to microbiome research to improve accuracy and efficiency.
