About the our logo

Repertoire Genesis ロゴ

The blue triangle means that a commercial-level repertoire analysis technology was developed for the first time by fusing three technologies: unbiased gene amplification, next generation sequencing, and repertoire analysis algorithm.

Further, the triangle is divided into four contrasts symbolizing the four professionals/founders that cooperated with each other [i.e. Ryuji Suzuki (Experimental Technology Development), Tadasu Shin-i (Software Development), Takaji Matsutani (Technology Improvement), and Kazutaka Kitaura (Transition to NGS)]. Since Repertoire Analysis is based on genetic analysis, we placed an abstract image of the DNA helical structure in the center.

The company's name was the one originally attached to the repertoire analysis algorithm. However, we decided to use it since it became a breakthrough in the development of the key software for the establishment of the company.

"We decided ""Trajan pro"" as a company name, which is located at the bottom of the logo.
It is because we felt sympathy for both the beauty and the degree of completeness and the formality which can be used also for the title of the movie."
