Genome explores the world of personalized medicine and the genomic revolution that makes it possible, empowering you to make informed health decisions that will help you live better and longer.

What We Do

Genome Magazine

Genome is the first consumer magazine focused solely on genomics and personalized medicine. Genome covers the personalized medicine stories of today and the breakthroughs of tomorrow, so people have the information they need to get the targeted treatments they deserve. Each quarterly issue provides advertisers a prime opportunity to reach a passionate audience with over 300,000 copies distributed per issue.

The Genome website,, is the go-to online destination for authoritative consumer content focused on personalized medicine. Generating over 70,000 impressions per month, visitors are information seekers who use the site as a launch pad for researching precision medicine. Online partners have seen significant traffic increases resulting from exposure on our site.


Presenting the complex world of genomics and precision medicine in a consumer-friendly way is our strength. In 2017, we produced the book Code Talkers, an extension of our "Code Talker Award" contest. The book contains a selection of the top essays from the contest, along with beautiful photography that highlights genetic counselors and the bond they have with their patients.

Apps and Games

Engagement through the use of mobile apps and games keeps customers interested in a sponsor's brand. In 2016, we launched "Genome Genius", a fun and exciting game that can be downloaded onto a mobile device through iTunes. The game will feature daily quizzes that teach players about genomics and precision medicine. A leaderboard shows how players are rated. "Genome Genius" can be customized for companies interested in training staff on precision medicine topics.


Genome's supplements provide readers an in-depth look at a particular subject matter. Sponsored supplements provide advertisers a unique opportunity to present an enhanced look into the subjects tied to their products. Supplements can be bound into or poly-bagged with the magazine to distribute to the more than 300,000 Genome readers.


Our events bring together thought leaders and lay audiences to interact and to create conversations that result in the evolution of care. At our "Understand Your Genome" event, participants spent the day learning from and connecting with precision medicine leaders. At our "Code Talker Award" event, Genome subscribers read essays about genetic counselors who had an impact on their lives, culminating in an award presented to the top genetic counselor, or "Code Talker." Do you have a collaborative idea for an event? Let us hear from you.


Electronic newsletters provide a quick and easy way to reach an audience passionate about personalized medicine between the months of our printed publication. Our "SNP Chat" newsletter is sent electronically to a readership of over 13,000 people. We regularly send out a new issue newsletter to provide a preview of the upcoming edition of Genome. Newsletters also cover our events, such as "Understand Your Genome" and the "Code Talker Award."

Content Licensing

Genome is known for its accuracy and attention to detail when dealing with the complex topics of genomics and personalized medicine. Companies have leveraged the expertise of the Genome editorial library by licensing our content to use on their websites for audience education.

" The timing is absolutely perfect for a consumer magazine on personalized medicine and genomics. The public is hearing about the breakthroughs regularly, and they are eager to be empowered with this type of information. Genome magazine will fill a critical communications void in the media and elevate the public’s understanding and engagement in how the genome will shape their care, healthcare delivery, and society as a whole.
