Our DNA is the blueprint for our body. It is coded with 4 nucleotides (‘letters’), which create the genes that serve as templates for the proteins that we are made of. Our DNA is 3 billion letters long, and is very similar from one person to the other. However, we do differ in about 10 million nucleotides on average. These Single Base Pair Variations (SNPs) are behind the differences between us, from looks and behavioral tendencies to metabolism and health.
Remarkable breakthroughs of the last decades allow us to read into our genetic code. We can associate the SNP of a gene with corresponding changes in an enzyme’s activity. Along with supportive evidence from biochemical research and epidemiological studies, it becomes possible to anticipate how these variants change a biochemical response or even an organ’s performance.
Genetic screening is becoming as common for athletes as measuring weight because a small change in a gene might be the difference between a world record and just making the final.
As scientists around the world publish multitudes of human genetic studies each year, we follow a rigorous quality assurance process to sift through the large data sets. We make sure that each of our tests is evidence-based, and the interpretations we provide are based on statistically-sound studies with large cohorts.
These days there is an abundance of Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) and meta-analysis studies that pool as much as half a million individuals (!), solidly associating a SNP with an affected trait. In any case, our standard statistical significance level is of P-value of 5% or better, with added Bonferroni correction when multiple factors are tested.
Boost your health and wellness with evidence-based advice and solid science. Unravel your inborn tendencies and predispositions and make informed decisions in choosing the optimal diet, exercise regime and other lifestyle habits.
The company was established by researchers who firmly believe it’s time to share the fruits of genetic knowledge with the general public. Our goal is to provide meaningful genetic analysis that helps in optimizing health and wellness. To that end, we constantly review the current scientific literature for quality studies that add to the expanding (and exciting) human knowledge on genes and the traits affected by them.
Our team of experienced geneticists, doctors and experts in nutrition, sports genetics, bio-statistics, dermatology, toxicology and pharmacology has developed the company’s products for the last six years. We integrate some of our original research with an up-to-date scientific literature and use bioinformatic tools to provide you with the best scientifically-based recommendations to fit your DNA.
