Genetics company IdentiGEN announced on Friday, November 25, that 20 graduate and post-graduate jobs will be created as the company expands its headquarters in Dublin.  IdentiGEN intends to hire data scientists and biotechnologists to work on DNA testing of meat and seafood products at the company’s headquarters in Dublin.

IdentiGEN provides traceability of meat and seafood products to the agri-food industry through DNA identification technologies. The service provides food retailers, processors and producers with the capability to identify and trace the source of animal protein through the entire supply chain.

“From business start-up in Trinity College in 1996 to micro-multinational in 2016, it’s been an amazing journey,” said IdentiGEN Co-founder and Managing Director Ciarán Meghen. “We see a future in which DNA, genetic, or genomic analysis becomes increasingly pervasive and democratised. As new technologies now offer the prospect of near instantaneous analysis, applications in pathogen detection and antibiotic resistance may become highly relevant to animal agriculture.”

IdentiGEN has recently expanded into new laboratory facilities in Blackrock, Co. Dublin. It has operations in the US, Canada, UK, Germany and the Czech Republic.

Enterprise Ireland Head of Division, Industrial, Lifesciences and Consumer Dr. Tom Kelly said: “We are delighted to support IdentiGEN, a company with global ambition as the first to introduce industrialised DNA profiling to the North American beef industry where it continues to expand internationally.
