How your DNA becomes a report.
While 99.5% of human DNA is Consistent across individuals, the small deviations called variants are what make each of us unique. This rich heritage is a tapestry woven from our ancestors, with variants often linked to specific health conditions, attributes, and ancestral lineages.
The DNA from cells in your saliva holds these secrets. Once you provide a sample using our user-friendly collection kit, the journey of uncovering these mysteries begins.
In our state-of-the-art, CLIA-certified laboratory, we extract the DNA from your saliva cells. This DNA is then processed through a sophisticated genotyping chip coupled with the power of AI, which identifies and reads hundreds of thousands of these unique variants in your genetic code.
Your genetic data is analyzed, and we generate your personalized reports based on well-established scientific and medical research and Secured in our Oracle database with NSA level encryptions and based in the USA.
Genetics: A Piece of the Puzzle.
Your DNA provides insights into your health and characteristics, but it’s merely one chapter in your health story. While genes can elevate your risk for numerous conditions, they usually don’t operate in isolation. Factors like your environment, lifestyle, and personal choices heavily influence health outcomes. Take type 2 diabetes (T2D), a widespread and partially preventable condition, as an example.
Research from extensive studies suggests that genetics might account for a 20-80% risk of T2D development. However, aspects like age, dietary habits, physical activity, weight, and ethnic background significantly influence this risk. For instance, your Body Mass Index (BMI) plays a pivotal role in determining T2D risk. Yet, BMI itself is a product of genetics, individual choices, and environmental factors. Factors such as diet, physical activity, and inherited tendencies combine, leading to obesity. Moreover, familial patterns often encompass shared dietary and lifestyle habits alongside genetic links.
Ultimately, it’s crucial to understand that genetic predispositions don’t seal your fate. Being aware of a heightened genetic risk for conditions like T2D can serve as a catalyst for healthier life decisions.
Behind the Scenes: Our Commitment to Excellence
Your DNA analysis undergoes a rigorous process, upheld by the highest standards. We trust only US laboratories that have earned CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988) certification and accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) to handle and process your DNA. Our adherence to these stringent standards underscores our unwavering commitment to delivering quality results.
