NEW YORK, May 14, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE). At Internet Week Yahoo! announced Genome from Yahoo! www.genomeplatform.com, an online advertising solution that combines Yahoo! data with interclick's third party data and advertisers' first party data along with a premium media footprint to provide marketers with the most complete, custom audience solution in the industry. To be available in July 2012, Genome is the culmination of a strategy that was put in place last year with the display ad agreement with Microsoft and AOL as well as the acquisition of interclick, which Yahoo! acquired in December 2011, to create a next generation audience buying solution with greater targeting and personalization capabilities.
