Daniel Wallerstorfer (born November 2, 1982) is an Austrian molecular biologist, biotechnologist and epigeneticist.

Early life[edit]

Born in Salzburg, Wallerstorfer moved to England at the age of 14 to complete his higher education and obtain a degree of Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology and a PhD in Biotechnology at the University of Manchester. It was here that he discovered that the U2 and U6 SnRNAs contribute to the catalysis of intron removal while U5 snRNA loop 1 holds the exons for ligation during pre-mRNA splicing.[1]


Novogenia GmbH[edit]

In 2009, Wallerstorfer returned to Austria and founded Novogenia GmbH[2] and received the license for medical genetic testing from the Federal Ministry of Health. At the same time, the DNA Plus Center for Human Genetics UG was founded in Germany under the control of Novogenia GmbH.

Novogenia and DNA Plus initially offered only genetic tests for health care, but expanded their portfolio with lifestyle genetic testing in the field of Nutrigenetics and weight control.[3] Novogenia also expanded over the years in the area of neonatal screening across Europe.

In 2011, the Novogenia GmbH created the Novogenia laboratory network. Within a short time, more than 100 medical genetic laboratories were added to this network, with a portfolio of more than 3000 various medical genetic testing.In 2012, the firm took over the worldwide pioneer in preventive genetic diagnostics, GENOSENSE Diagnostics GmbH.[4] In 2013, Novogenia extended its portfolio in new business areas, such as dietary supplements[5] based on genetic data.[6]


Since 2014, Novogenia differentiates between the two marks DNAnutriControl[7] and DNAhealthControl[8] [9] and a global pioneer in preventive genetic diagnostics. ,[10]


In 2018, Wallerstorfer co-founded Rootine,[11] a daily regimen of nutritional supplements delivered in the form of micro-beads[12] and created from DNA, blood level, and lifestyle data.[13][14]

Personal life[edit]

Wallerstorfer lives in Salzburg with his wife Maria.[citation needed]
