The story of...


GenoFAB®, LLC was setup in 2012 to ensure the sustainability of bioinformatics resources developed at the Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech (formerly Virginia Bioinformatics Institute). Initially, GenoFAB was focused on making these resources available using a subscription business model. Soon, it became apparent that customers were more interested in contract research services than in getting access to software. In 2016, GenoFAB changed its focus by providing integrated services to drug discovery companies who need to improve the performance of their protein production processes. 




The main ideas behind GenoFAB technology are first described in Bioinformatics


The first version of GenoCAD is described in Nucleic Acids Research. Virginia Tech receives a $1.4M grant from the National Science Foundation to develop GenoCAD.  


GenoFAB is incorporated to ensure GenoCAD sustainability. Virginia Tech receives $1M grant from the National Science Foundation to analyze DNA fabrication processes. 


New applications of GenoCAD are described in Bioinformatics and ACS Synthetic Biology. 


Virginia Tech announces that GenoCAD support is transferred to GenoFAB to ensure its sustainability. Description of a curated library of plasmid annotations published in Nucleic Acids Research
