Elad Gil co-founded Color Genomics among others like Taylor Sittler, Nish Bhat, and Othman Laraki, a native of Casablanca, Morocco, who serves as company’s CEO, in Burlingame, California. In 2015, Color Genomics accepted an initial $15 million in funding. It raised an additional $45 million in September 2016. Katie Jacobs Stanton became the CMO of Color Genomics in 2016, and Jill Hagenkord became the Chief Medical Officer.

Color Genomic’s purpose is to surge availability for genetic testing. Part of this is to develop access to tests for minorities, in order to better understanding non-Caucasian gene variants. The original cost for the test was approximately 10% of the cost of testing through traditional companies. Later on, the company offered a discounted price for the family members of those who test positive for inherited mutations. In 2017, Color Genomics began taking health insurance for the Color Test.

The technological startup companies have also begun adding Color Genomics testing to their medical packages. The University of Washington and Color Genomics released a widely obtainable database of variants in 27 breast cancer genes based on the given samples from over 70 years old women who have never had breast cancer. The samples were gathered from samples given to the Women’s Health Initiative between 1993 and 2005. In 2018, Color grew its offering to include a $249 test for genetic heart health. The test examines 30 genes to observe for risk of a wide range of genetic heart conditions, including cardiomyopathies, cardiac arrhythmias, and arteriopathies.

The NIH recognized Color funding on September 25, 2018, for their All of Us Research program. On September 27, 2018, Color added a new health area, medication response, to evaluate genes related with commonly prescribed prescriptions, and report on how those genes can affect how individuals process and react to those treatments.
