Following the completion of the Human Genome Project1 in 2003, which sought to map the entire human DNA sequence2, several companies had developed technologies for researchers to exploit that mountain of data. Specifically, those new products helped scientists find the links between the variations in a person’s genetic code and their predisposition to disease. It was hoped that ultimately this would usher in an era when disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention could be tailored to an individual’s unique genetic identity. Arcadian Microarray Technologies, Inc.,3 headquartered in Arcadia, California, was founded in 2003 by seven research scientists, two of whom had been major contributors to the Human Genome Project itself. The team had developed a unique DNA scanning device in the form of a waferlike glass chip that could allow scientists to analyze thousands of human genes or gene fragments at one time,
