23andMe has been collecting genetic data since 2008, and it’s always been part of our mission to look at a broad range of topics from Parkinson’s Disease to motion sickness. Watch this video to hear from our researchers, and learn more about how our team aims to accelerate the pace of biomedical research.

I'M STILL LOOKING FORWARD TO GET MY RESULTS
Correlational leads are a great approach. Most medical studies are single-shot efforts
i like to find out aboutmy generate data
The service no longer provides a Personal Genome Service that includes a
health report addressing disease risks! What a huge disappointment.
This was the whole reason my health care practitioner recommended this
service. The information provided is merely for party tricks rather
than useful data. Are you looking to see what diseases you might be
predisposed towards? If so, 23 and Me will be of no help. Save your
money until they resume offering these reports. Oh, and just 2-3 days
after they receive your spit, you will not be able to get a refund – not
even a partial one!
Do these tests look for Intersex conditions? I was born with one testis and a fetal ovary. I think it is called a fetal timing defect. It would be interesting to know if this is gene related issues or a fetal development issue from sort of of endocrine chemical exposure. My family history points to both as a possible cause.
Really do appreciate your contribution to advancing societies knowledge about themselves, and how to live healthier lives. Quick question. My wife and I are expecting a child soon, and I feel that understanding our genetics would give us some extra information on how to provide for our child in the every way possible. What are the benefits of knowing? Learning about this firm in my business class had peaked my interest.
Sounds great but with over six billion inhabitants each with unique set of 20k+ genes.
How big is your "big sampling"? And more importantly how well diverse is your sampling?
