Founded in August 2019, the laboratory of innovation and services in genetics “ÉONgenetics” was created by a partnership between the Human Genetics and Evolution group, the Center for Molecular and Environmental Biology (CBMA) at the University of Minho and one of the most emblematic and prestigious companies in the Portuguese jewelery industry, Ouronor®. Headquartered on the 4th floor of the Institute of Science and Innovation for Bio-Sustainability (IB-S) at the University of Minho in Braga, it asserts itself as the national pioneer in applying the most innovative technologies in the areas of genetics and biotechnology for extraction, purification, amplification and inclusion of human DNA in jewelery.
Tendering the possibility of buying a truly unique and personalized luxury product. Using the refined culture of Goldsmith art to bank your own genetic code, for future scientific analysis.
Our laboratories and equipment respond to the most rigorous quality controls, guaranteeing not only the quality and integrity of DNA, but good laboratory practices and ethical principles (ISO procedure).
The vast experience in evolutionary genetics of human populations and the various collaborations developed with national and international research centers allow our laboratory to provide services in the field of molecular genetics, such as new generation genomic sequencing (NGS), processing of bioinformatics data, development technologies to decode the information contained in DNA, genealogy / ancestry tests, genetic tests for health (MyNutriGenes®) and for sport (MyFitnessGenes®)
Highly qualified team composed of Doctors and Masters from diverse areas such as analytics, computing, genetics, biotecnology, management, economy and marketing.
