Using's DNA API to Build DNA Apps

Developers can use's Universal DNA API to build, develop and code apps that are personalized to genes and analyze or process genetic data as an alternative to the 23andMe API but also works with genetic data from all DNA testing companies including 23me, Ancestry, AncestryDNA, MyHeritage, FamilyTreeDNA FTDNA, Vitagene, LivingDNA, tellmeGen, 24Genetics, Dante Labs, Illumina, Macrogen, gedmatch, Fulgent, GeneDx, Ambry, Veritas Genetics, HLI, Baylor, WGS, NGS and genome sequencing.

Are you a software developer looking to create a cutting edge app? Alternatively, maybe you are a developer with a DNA app but are not sure how to scale it? If you find yourself in either of these scenarios, can help! With our DNA APIs, you can create apps that help people transform their genetic data into meaningful and actionable information.

By using's APIs, you can quickly tap into our incredibly large number of users by selling your app in's DNA app store.


Wait, What Are DNA Apps?

If you are new to writing software or have never worked in the genetics space before, you may be wondering, what is a DNA app? That’s fine, and we get it! It is an entirely new industry, so don’t beat your self up.

The short answer is that DNA apps are part of the future of health. Imagine real-time feedback based on our genetics. The slightly longer explanation is that they are software applications that interpret genetic data, conduct an analysis, and provide some feedback to the user. Often the analysis and feedback are related to health, but genetic genealogy apps are also incredibly popular.


23andMe DNA API

23andMe discontinued their API in 2018 but we've got you covered!'s DNA APIs are the best alternative to 23andMe's API.

Plus, due to's unique Universal Data Compatibility, our APIs enable your apps to become instantly compatible with genetic data from all DNA tests including 23andMe, AncestryDNA, MyHeritage, FamilyTreeDNA, Helix, Vitagene, LivingDNA, Dante Labs, Veritas Genetics, GeneDx, Ambry, HLI, 24Genetics, tellmeGen as well as all exome and whole genome sequencing services.’s DNA APIs

Sequencing.coms offers two DNA APIs.

The first is our App Market API which allows you to easily access customers and their genetic data by offering your app in our DNA app store. Doing so is incredibly easy! It’s just about three calls between and your system. To help, we provide you with API plugins, a secure integration environment, and a convenient development console so you can test and trace while implementing the API.

The second DNA API we offer is our Real-Time Personalization® (+RTP) API. +RTP is a web service technology that enables apps to provide context to data. Context refers to an app having the ability to comprehend the uniqueness and individuality of each app user. In essence, the app can become cognizant of the app user as a unique individual.

Using the +RTP API, you can create real-time interactions between a person, their genetics and their environment. It is the perfect solution for adding DNA-based personalization to mobile apps in the Apple App Store and Google Play as well as web apps and EMR/EHR systems.

Whole genome sequencing, also known as WGS, is a laboratory technique in which the entire coding (exon) and non-coding regions of the genome are obtained. It provides a complete, comprehensive map of a person’s genetic makeup and allows extensive analysis of all genes to be performed. It's a single lab test that obtains all...
