DNA Sequencing Inc was incorporated in 2010 and I have been its President since then.
Tell us how your product or service helps deliver value to your customers:
DNA Sequencing Inc owns most of the top Exact Match Domains in this niche such as DNAsequencing.com, DNAsequence.com, DNAmap.com, DNAcode.com, HumanGenome.com, DNAtechnology.com etc. These domains get type-in traffic, are meaningful, pass the radio test and have large search volumes and cost per click. A company which wants to dominate the $ 20 Billion per year market in online space can use this portfolio and leave the competition behind.

Domaining started as a hobby in 1998 with registration of Patiala.com and of DNAmap.com in 1999. Then it slowly became my passion. Back then I never thought that one day I will own almost all of Exact Match Domains of a niche which now is worth $20 Billion/year.
