Amazing results from 23andMe!

They are constantly updating their trait association studies, and I was super excited to find out some new information about my genome. I hope the NIH is paying attention and that SNP uploads will soon be part of the “Investigator” section of grant review.

  1. I think you just slot that right into to the biosketch.

    About the only thing that 23andme tells me is that I’m even whiter than I thought I was

  3. You are not going to have those wonderful genes go to waste by not having kids now are you???

    Of course! I’m going to single-handedly solve the pipeline problem by staying out of the gene pool. Also, not seen here is my 50% increased risk for restless leg syndrome… that scourge must die with me.

    Out of curiosity are you happy with 23andme? Can’t tell if you’re joking on here are not.

  6. rxnm says:

    Definitely joking about the particular result highlighted in this pic. Overall, 23andMe is fun, though I have a mostly boring genome. There are sites, such as Interpretome, where you can do more advanced analyses with your SNP data.

    Oh cool so they’ll give you your SNP data. I think I’m largely interested in whatever that Alzheimer’s predisposition gene is (an APOE maybe)–they link to that one?

    I tried the last time it was $99 and they failed to sequence me despite the fact I sent two spit receptacles back. Maybe I’m a Cylon?
