What is DNA Raw Data Analysis?
DNA raw data analysis is the act of analyzing genetic information that has been digitized as computer data. This computer data is then analyzed with by apps designed to process DNA data. The apps review your genetic information, compare the findings to scientific data and generate reports. The reports provide meaningful information about you and your family, such as your family’s heritage and health conditions you or your loved ones may be predisposed to.
How Do I Perform DNA Raw Data Analysis
To accomplish this, you first need to take a genetic test. If you take a test from a consumer testing company such as Ancestry DNA, 23andMe, FamilyTree DNA, MyHeritage, Living DNA, Genes for Good, DNA Land, Silverberry Genomix or Vitagene, a tremendous amount of raw DNA data is generated for you. While these companies only analyze a very small amount of your DNA data, they do provide you with access to your raw DNA data. You can use apps at Sequencing.com to more comprehensively analyze your DNA data in order to obtain additional insights.
Clinical laboratories commonly also provide access to raw DNA data directly to consumers, healthcare providers and patients. Clinical labs, and even consumer-focused companies such as Dante Labs, now offer whole genome sequencing. Having your whole genome sequenced will provide you with the largest amount of raw DNA data as well as the greatest opportunity to learn about you and your loved ones. Two outstanding companies we recommend for genome sequencing are Dante Labs and Genomics Personalized Health (GPH).
When you receive your results, the company providing the testing will often provide the ability to download the raw DNA data. Once you do that, you can easily upload or import the data into Sequencing.com and then use apps in our marketplace to obtain a wealth of personalized insights. From there you will be able to check out your results and start outsmarting your genes!
Did you know?
In the United States, if you take a DNA test then you have the right to obtain your raw DNA data. It's the law! Federal law mandates that a person has the right to obtain the results of laboratory testing directly from the company that performed the test. This means that if you request it, the company that performed your genetic testing is required to provide you with your genetic data.
