A new name for our nonprofit.

Our nonprofit has a new name: the Open Humans Foundation.

Open Humans is a project of a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Since its founding in 2008, this organization’s name has been “PersonalGenomes.org”. We’ve now got a new name, but our mission remains the same: to make a wide spectrum of data about humans accessible to increase biological literacy and improve human health.

Check out the new website at: http://openhumansfoundation.org

The Open Humans Foundation continues to support our other programs, including the GET Conference and the Personal Genome Project.
