Meaning of the Company Name

“Chiome” (pronounced as “kai-ohm”) is a fusion word from “Chiasma” and “-ome.” The “chi” (pronounced as “kai”) of Chiome is the “chi” of “Chiasma.” “Chiasma” is the point of contact between paired chromatids during meiosis, resulting in a cross-shaped configuration. It is the cytological manifestation of crossing over, representing the blending of genes and the birth of a new generation.
The “-ome” of Chiome is the same as the “-ome” of “Genome” and “-ome” of “Proteome,” which carries the meaning of “collectivity.” The name Chiome therefore signifies “Exchange,” “Diversity,” “Sustainable” and “Fusion.”

Chiome = Chiasma + -one
