This Next Billion Dollar DNA Company Will Test Your Dog For A Healthier Life

A dog lover who studied computer science and biology at Harvard, Ryan Boyko, 33, is the cofounder and CEO of Embark, a Boston-based company that tests dog DNA. He launched the company two years ago with his brother Adam, a Cornell University genetics professor who specializes in canines. In addition to details about a dog’s breed, for $199, Embark tests for more than 160 genetic conditions that can predict whether an animal will develop ailments like bladder stones, heart disease or glaucoma. Since it made the product available in late May 2016, Embark has made more than 20,000 sales. In this interview, which has been edited and condensed, Boyko tells how he got Embark off the ground.
