Our story

Our story begins with a very concrete research need, i.e. to be able to run a large number of RNA sequencing experiments in an affordable and rapid manner.

 

To address this need, we set out to develop a new technology called Bulk RNA Barcoding and sequencing (BRB-seq). We published our technology in the peer-reviewed journal Genome Biology in April 2019 and, by the end of the year, our article entered the 2019 TOP 10 most read papers of the journal.

 

As a corroboration of the interest of the scientific community, we received several inquiries from labs and companies asking for support to establish our technology in their facilities (kits) or to run BRB-seq directly on their RNA samples (service).

 

Soon, the requests became so many to be able to handle them from within our lab. So we decided it was time to launch a new company.

 

Alithea Genomics was founded in May 2020 by co-founders Riccardo Dainese (CEO), Daniel Alpern (CTO) and Prof. Bart Deplancke (Scientific advisor).
