Allelica has created a secure and trusted platform for Polygenic Risk Score analysis and reporting. We equip health systems and clinical laboratories with cutting-edge tools to reduce the impact of chronic diseases through genomic medicine.
Allelica’s software empowers health systems to reduce the burden of chronic disease through revolutionary preventive healthcare tools powered by the integration of patients’ clinical and genomic data.
Allelica’s end-to-end Polygenic Risk Score pipeline provides clinical laboratories with a secure infrastructure for PRS analysis through to clinical reporting and can determine a patients’ absolute risk of common diseases through a simple file upload of their genotyped data.
Allelica’s PRS modules for new score discovery and validation perform the work of a team of bioinformaticians, enabling researchers to generate the best performing PRS using multiple gold standard algorithms in parallel and achieve publication ready results without months of bioinformatics efforts.

The Allelica team will provide attendees with information on how PRS can radically improve cancer risk assessments.
Allelica participated in the 2022 ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting in Nashville, TN. The Allelica team was able to network with industry leaders and discuss the power of Polygenic Risk Score in clinical practice.
Allelica continues to set the industry standard of clinical-grade Polygenic Risk Score analysis with the addition of two key ISO certifications. ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certify that Allelica applies medical device quality management processes every step of the way.
Allelica hosted a Genomeweb webinar on the clinical application of Polygenic Risk Score in risk assessments. Speakers included Dr. Pradeep Natarajan from the Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Noura Abul-Husn from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Allelica CSO, Dr. George Busby.
Allelica is joining forces with world leaders in genomic medicine at Congenica to provide an educational webinar focused on Polygenic Risk Score in clinical application. The speakers will cover the opportunities and challenges to widespread implementation for PRS in the UK and beyond.
Alongside international scientists, Allelica CSO, George Busby, presented on PRS at the largest genomics conference in Latin America. George discussed how PRS is applied in non-European populations and how PRS modulates penetrance of single gene mutations.
Together with researchers at University of Sydney and Illumina, Inc., Allelica researchers and health economist, Deo Mujwara, completed a study on the cost-saving power of PRS for health systems. The study focuses on application of PRS in heart disease risk assessments, specifically looking at the advantages of using PRS as a risk enhancing factor in the Pooled Cohort Equation.
Alongside the three leading cardiovascular scientific societies in Italy, Allelica hosted a press conference focused on the commercialization of CardioriskSCORE, the CAD PRS developed by Allelica and published in Circulation. Participants discussed the impact this has on heart attack risk and its implications for more effective primary prevention strategies. The conference was attended by top cardiologists and pharmaceutical companies in Europe.
In the Spring 2021 edition, Pharmafile magazine interviewed Allelica CEO, Giordano Bottà, on the critical role Polygenic Risk Score plays in assessing patients’ risk of heart disease. The interview covers the process of PRS integration in existing cardiovascular disease risk assessment, and discusses how Allelica is helping to power rapid adoption of PRS for complex disease in the clinic.
Allelica CSO, George Busby, presented on the increasingly important role of polygenic risk scores in precision medicine in the UK and beyond, highlighting the challenges and opportunities for PRS implementation at scale. The webinar was hosted by the Oxford Personalised Medicine Society, part of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics & University of Oxford.
Allelica CEO and co-founder, Giordano Bottà, was interviewed as part of an editorial piece, Polygenic Risk Scores: Taking Hold in the Clinic, in the most recent version of Clinical Omics. He discusses the growing importance of PRS in healthcare and the opportunities it presents for chronic disease prevention.
Allelica researchers identified a critical interaction between PRS for coronary artery disease (CAD) and LDL cholesterol level. Their discovery has major implications for clinical decision-making in primary prevention strategies. The research is now available in the American Heart Association Journal, Circulation.
This event will showcase emerging and innovative applications advancing consumer & healthcare genomics to accelerate the adoption of precision medicine in healthcare systems. We will be discussing the life-saving potential of PRS for heart disease and its power to advance personalized lipid management.
Formed earlier this year, the COVID-19 Host Genetics Initiative is an open collaboration between scientists around the globe. It is focused on identifying genetic determinants of disease susceptibility and severity in order to understand why symptoms manifest in such drastically different ways. As participants in the initiative, we are developing scores to predict disease severity. e also built web and mobile digital tools to collect data from hospitalized patients.
