Food Genes and Me is a genomic services company headquartered in Henderson, Nevada. Our company offers direct-to-consumer services related to dietary advice based upon one’s genetic makeup. Since food and nutrient intake is a daily event, your lifestyle and well-being may be enhanced by adjusting your diet considering the latest scientific findings and your genetic vulnerabilities. The dietary advice provided by Food Genes and Me is fully supported by published genetic studies with rigorous statistical significance and similarly supported genetic variants discovered by our own research.

The personalized dietary advice is based on technology developed in the Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine was funded in part by a Knowledge Fund grant from the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development and a grant from the National Science Foundation iCORPs program. One goal of these programs is to foster startup companies like Food Genes and Me.
