Dante Labs is a biotechnology company headquartered in New York City, New York that was founded in 2016 by Andrea Riposati. The company offers bioinformatic analysis of genomic data and direct to consumer saliva collection genomic testing kits that are available for purchase in the United States, Europe, and Asia. DNA testing kits offered by Dante Labs include the following DNA sequencing services: whole genome sequencing (WGS), whole exome sequencing (WES), and a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT). Users who complete the tests can receive reports on their raw genomic data, pathogenic variants, and reports of their genes associated with health conditions.
In 2018 Dante Labs pledged to sequence 10,000 European genomes by 2020 to improve the collective understanding of the variations in the human genome across the European continent.
WholeGenomeL is a 30X long reads whole genome sequencing services with an average read length of N50>20,000bp that was launched by Dante Labs on April 8, 2019. The WholeGenomeL services is powered by Oxford Nanopore Promethion technology and is performed at the Dante Labs certified third-generation sequencing lab in L'Aquila, Italy.

- DNA sequencingThe process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule.
- GenomicsThe study of genomes. A genome is the full set of genetic material from an organism. Genomics is an area of research that is concerned with all genes and other functional DNA elements within an organism and how they control the development and life of that organism.
- BioinformaticsInterdisciplinary field that applies computational techniques to solve biological problems on the molecular level.
